DENVER (AP) - Denver guard Chase Hallam is relishing his return to the court this season after a back injury nearly ended his career.
Hallam fractured a vertebra and herniated a disk late last year by simply rolling over in his sleep. Doctors feared his career just might be finished.
Through rehab and rest, the lone senior returned in time to start the season and is leading the squad with his tenacity. Even more, he has the Pioneers (19-8) in line for something that has never happened in school history - making the NCAA tournament field.
They end the regular season by hosting Louisiana Tech (26-3) on Saturday, a final test before heading into Western Athletic Conference tournament, where more than likely only the winner will earn a spot in the big show.
