SEVENS GENERAL MANAGER BRANDON WILLIAMS STATEMENT ON DIONTE CHRISTMAS:
“After consultation with our team physician, Dr. Joseph Mesa, it was determined that Dionte Christmas suffered a right Achilles tendon rupture during today’s game against the Northern Arizona Suns and will miss the remainder of the season. He will be scheduled for surgery at Delaware Orthopaedic Specialists in the coming days.
“On behalf of the Sevens organization, I sincerely thank Dionte for his tremendous contributions to our team this season. He has been a consummate professional, positive influence on the development of our young roster, and vital to our energy and drive. We will certainly miss his leadership on the court, but are inspired by his confidence as he attacks the next steps on the road to recovery.”
