Southern is just getting used to playing with a smaller lineup and now it’s getting one of its big men back.
Center Frank Snow, who has missed the last four games after undergoing surgery to repair a broken bone in his shooting hand, is expected to return to the floor when the Jaguars (13-14, 10-3 in the Southwestern Athletic Conference) play Alabama A&M (7-15, 6-6) at 5:30 p.m. Saturday in the F.G. Clark Activity Center.
Snow won’t return to the starting lineup right away and he’ll play limited minutes as coach Roman Banks eases him back into action. Nonetheless Snow’s return is significant because he joins Keith Davis as the tallest players on the team at 6-foot-10. Jared Sam (6-9) is the only other player taller than 6-7.
“Our biggest struggle this season has been rebounding,” guard Christopher Hyder said, “so having Frank back will be big.”
In Snow’s absence, Banks often went with essentially a four-guard lineup that had 6-4 shooting guard Adrian Rodgers playing power forward, flanked by Trelun Banks (6-1), Tre Lynch (6-0), Hyder (5-11) and one frontcourt player.
