UNO's Humphrey sidelined by knee

NEW ORLEANS -- Billy Humphrey, a senior guard who transferred to New Orleans from Georgia last year, is expected to be sidelined two to four weeks because of recent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee.

UNO coach Joe Pasternack says Humphrey's recovery may force him miss UNO's season opener against his old team, the Bulldogs, at Georgia on Nov. 13.

Pasternack says the 6-foot-2 Humphrey was operated on last week.

The Dacula graduate averaged 12.2 points per game for Georgia in 2007-08 but was kicked off the team in June of 2008 following an arrest on charges of drunk driving and underage purchase of alcohol, which was his third arrest in a year.
