2 players are leaving UT Martin’s program next season, and I have a quick update to UTM’s “What Went Wrong” from last week.
First the Update: Per WPSD, Terrance Smith was cleared to return to practice in January, but was never cleared for games. He has now been cleared entirely, and is expected to return to the team next season, after taking a medical red shirt this season. So I’ve edited that part of the article.
Now for the players leaving. WPSD is also reporting that James says sophomore guard Chris Richardson and freshman Martez Harris will not return to the team next year.
Neither are exactly team killing transfers. Richardson played just 15 minutes a game, and shot (and I’m not kidding here..) 27% from the floor, and 23% from 3-point range. Shooting isn’t everything, but when you’re a 6’0″ guard…shooting is somewhat important.
Some fans might not even know who Harris is. He only played in 15 games before injury ended his season, although he did average 12 minutes and shot…29% from the floor.
As I said…not exactly team killing transfers.
