More health woes for ex-Tiger Thiero
January 20, 2007
Former University of Memphis center Almamy Thiero, who now plays for Duquesne, was hospitalized Friday with blood clots in his lungs and will be sidelined indefinitely.
The 6-foot-9, 255-pound Thiero missed most of the 2003-04 season at Memphis because of the same problem. He also had two leg operations while at Memphis.
The native of Mali is averaging 2.4 points and 3.3 rebounds in 15 games for the Dukes.
