Vandalia grad Eric Hobbie has been waiting for this moment for months.
On Thursday, it will finally happen. After missing two months of games, Hobbie will once again be on the court for McKendree University.
"I am very happy to be back," said the Bearcat senior. "There were several players that had an opportunity to play because I was injured. That may actually help us in the long run. The leg is not 100 percent, but it is getting better all the time."
