Dunbar's Spence healing fast

December 16, 2009

Dunbar senior point guard Corey Spence, injured in a car accident late last month, is ahead of schedule in his rehabilitation and could be back on the court by mid-January, Dunbar coach Cyrus Jones said.

Spence suffered internal injuries, including a punctured lung, but could be practicing in two weeks. Shortly after the accident, there was question whether Spence would return at all in his senior season.

"We need him back because he changes a whole lot of things we do. When he's in there, it makes a big difference for us," Jones said.

The No. 13 Poets improved to 2-1 by beating IBE, 74-44, on Tuesday.
