The hope is that PJ Hall can make a successful recovery quickly and return to action early in the college basketball season. His return could be the difference in the program’s evaluation of Head Coach Brad Brownwell who is rumored to be on the hot seat this season. Hall is a talented player and hopefully, he is able to return to his former self. We here at Def Pen Sports wish him the best in his recovery and return to the court this season.
