Healthy Perry Preparing for Super Junior Season

Recommended Posts


USF Senior Writer

TAMPA, OCT. 18, 2015 – USF men’s basketball fans are less than a month away from seeing the new and improved Chris Perry.

The Bulls’ 6-foot-8, 250-pound junior forward said he’s better than ever after averaging 9.0 points and 7.3 rebounds during the program’s tour of Spain in August.


“I can run for the longest periods I’ve ever been able to go. My body feels the best that it’s ever been,” Perry said.

It hasn’t always been this way for one of USF’s most productive players the past two seasons.

Perry was averaging 10.8 points and a team-leading 7.1 rebounds last season when the Bulls were preparing to take on the Huskies in Connecticut last January.

“I was just tired. I couldn’t catch my breath. My chest was beating pretty fast,” said Perry, who was taken to the hospital in Hartford.

Perry missed the final 13 games of the season with what turned out to be a left ventricle issue.

“It sucked just watching long practices every day and realizing how hard I should have been going during the season, all year,” Perry said. “I had to get my focus back and not take anything else for granted. It was crazy.”

“It can all be taken away just like that without a warning,” Perry said. “This year, I know what it takes to be a leader and I know what it takes to get to the next level. Now it’s just a matter of me keeping my focus.”

Go get 'em, Chris. It's a new lease on the life you love.
