Demarco Cox Cleared By Doctors

First reported by Parrish Alford of Tupelo's Daily Journal, Demarco Cox, the big 6'8, 270 pound Ole Miss center nicknamed "The Bear", has been cleared by doctors to begin conditioning. Cox has been sidelined for the majority of the season with a re-injured stress fracture in his foot. Cox has tallied 44 minutes in 7 games this year, averaging just 1.6 points per game and 1.1 rebounds per game.

Last year, Cox averaged 3.2 points per game and 2.9 rebounds per game in 13.4 minutes per game. His career high in both points and rebounds came in the same game on December 30th, 2010 against Alcorn State when he tallied the only double-double of his career (11 points, 10 rebounds.)

There is no word on how quickly Cox could be added back to the front court mix, but the news of his clearing comes at a critical time for the Rebels. With Carter dismissed and Jones out for the season with a torn ACL, Cox could provide desperately needed depth behind Buckner and Holloway. And given the starters' affinity to foul (22 fouls between them in the last 3 games), that depth will be reached for often.
