Billy Humphrey to Play?

The University of New Orleans is going into the Sun Belt Conference's tournament and they are planning to leave it all out on the floor.

Billy Humphrey is doing his part. Although I was almost certain that Humphrey would not play again this year, he has reportedly been practicing with the team this week, and it appears that he will power through his knee problems and try to help New Orleans in their battle against Western Kentucky.

It is likely that the game today will be the end of an era. Unless New Orleans wins the tournament, they will be done for the year. And at the end of the season, the Privateers will be moving from Division I down to Division III, in which players will not receive scholarships to compete.

With Humphrey's knee problems and the exhaustion of his eligibility, his playing career will probably end today. That's the reason, at least in part, why Humphrey is making one last attempt to get back out there today. His team needs him and he wants to go out on a high note.

Here's hoping for the best.
