High Point's Allan Chaney's Career Is Over

Evan Habeeb-USA TODAY Sports

Scott Cherry's High Point Panthers were doled a huge blow today as news of Allan Chaney's lingering heart complications came down.

High Point's Allan Chaney has been quite the story over the past several years. Chaney was a high profile recruit for Billy Donovan at Florida and appeared in 23 games for the Gators in 2008-09. He then decided to transfer to Virginia Tech and was told by doctors that he had viral mycarditis, which causes inflation of the heart.

Chaney was never cleared to play for the Hokies and eventually found his way to High Point University to play for Scott Cherry's Panthers. Chaney appeared in 30 games last year and averaged 14.5 points and 8 rebounds per game. Combining him and John Brown formed the most formidable frontcourt tandem in the Big South Conference.

Chaney continued to be a dominant force this year in five games with High Point, but collapsed after his internal defibrillator went off in a November 24 game against Wofford. Chaney was then listed on a day-to-day basis for the Panthers, but today the news came down that he will not be cleared to play again and that his career is indeed over.

Through four complete games this year Chaney was averaging 18.3 points and 9.8 rebounds per game. This is certainly a humongous blow for the Big South North Division favorites and evens a very murky race for the division.

The Panthers have lost both games since losing Chaney, most recently 80-45 to Georgetown Thursday night. High Point won't play again until December 14 versus James Madison.
