RE: Deion Lavender off the team?
Is he the only one that Ehsan wasn't buddies with?

I'll second that.

His problem is he didn't learn to shoot from outside or he would have had plenty of playing time this year and next.

Since he can't, he became a 3rd string point guard and without an injury, we don't really need one.

Not having him the rest of the way is not ideal but the season is pretty much already shot. Unless you think we can win 4 games in 4 days.

He won't have any problem finding a half dozen schools lining up to sign him next year.

And, I seriously doubt that UAB puts anything out about it. He just won't return next year, quietly.

They are not going to kick him off the team or announce he quit if he quit.

I hate that because I think he gave us a dimension really none of our players did. The biggest problem I see is that we now are essentially down 2 scholarship players. Hurtado redshirting. Lavender gone. Our depth was once considered a strength but now I’m not really sure. Smallwood is on scholarship but rarely contributes any minutes.

Lavender going may be best for both parties in the long run. But I think it’s going to complicate things even more in the short term.

Longer term it will be interesting to see how Ehsan goes about recruiting to fill that spot.

They've known for 2 months he wouldn't be back next year.

A certain big needs to become a manager or find another place to play next year.

That way we can fill the spot with someone who has a chance at contributing on the court.

From what I've been able to get, his intent was never to leave until it was clear that his relationship with Rob was not going to change. I've also been hearing that it was not his decision to miss the game(s) earlier in the season. Lastly, I've heard that more will leave. By the way, anyone know what happened to JD? He could probably shed some light on the player coach situation that is developing here.

Rob is the coach. But, if I were the coach, I probably would not have played him any more because of the way he shot last year. And presumably it was not any better this year in practice.

No coach benches guys who can help the team.

As for JD, someone, the daily dragon guy maybe, implied he could not return but I don't know what that meant. Grades or legal troubles or what? But I don't think he would be getting a boatload of minutes if he was still here because he can't shoot from outside either.

He is 28.9% in juco. Usually, guys drop about 5% when they transfer to D1.
(Their first year, then they make up it up the following year)

Well, you probably need to if you think that this situation is going to turn around.
