Selden Returns from Injury

ESPNU 25 swingman Wayne Selden (Boston/Tilton School) has returned to the court after being sidelined by injury for the first month of the school season.

Selden was one of the pillars for an incredible summer for the Boston Amateur Basketball Club as they captured the Nike EYBL championship at the Peach Jam, AAU sophomore division national championship, and AAU freshman division national championship.

Selden was especially busy, being the only player in the program to play for all three championship teams.

Shortly after his summer came to an end, Selden was diagnosed with compartment syndrome and required to undergo surgery in August.

The procedure left him with a 10-inch scar down the side of his calf muscle and forced him to sit out the first four weeks of Tilton’s preseason workouts.

There was a silver lining to his temporary setback though, as his trip to the doctor’s office officially confirmed what he had been telling people throughout the summer.

“I’m officially 6-5 now,” Selden said with a smile. “I got measured at the doctor’s office.”

Selden recently returned to the court and didn’t show much lingering rust, according to Tilton coach Marcus O’Neil.
