Status update on Norense Odiase

After breaking his fourth metatarsal on his right foot three weeks ago, sophomore center Norense Odiase is no longer wearing a hard cast.

Now, he is in a boot and walking on his own.

"They say he’s progressing well," Tech coach Tubby Smith said. "He’s still on track. They like the way he’s healing. They took him out of the hard cast and put him in a boot so now he can just walk. That’s a real positive sign. I’m not sure when we’ll get him back. If anybody can get back and get ready, Norense can."

Q: When you dunk, whether in pregame, during a game or in a competition, at what point do you know that you just did something absurd? A: I think it's mainly the teammates' reaction because they do see a lot of what happens every day.
