Missing backup PG becoming a pain in the Bass

The concussion issues for Ryan Bass led to a shortened bench for Oakland coach Greg Kampe Saturday against Michigan at The Palace. Kampe opted to play just seven players most of the game, opting to bring in freshman Matt Poches late Saturday.
“(Bass) could have done a really good job on Trey Burke," Kampe said. "That’s what his calling card is. He’s a little guy who’s a great athlete and can really get after it. Not having that hurt us, but it wasn’t a game-changer.”
Playing Poches Saturday means Bass isn't likely to return this season because the team had initially planned to red-shirt the guard from Hartland because of a logjam at the position. That option is no longer available since Poches saw time, less than a minute, Saturday.
“Every team has injuries and has bad things happen to them and you play through them,” Kampe said. 
Bass collided with Blake Cushingberry in practice this week and the team says Bass is out indefinitely.
