Report: Former IU guard Bassett leaving UAB

  • 12/16/2008 1:57 pm in

Former Indiana guard, who was booted off the Indiana roster last spring by interim coach Dan Dakich, is leaving UAB.

Jeff Goodman of FoxSports has the scoop:

Former Indiana guard Armon Bassett won’t play a game at UAB.

The 6-foot-1 junior, who was forced to sit out this season after transferring from Indiana, is leaving UAB, according to sources close to the situation.

Whatever the reason for leaving (speculation here that it’s grades), it’s a shame that a string of bad decisions ended Bassett’s career at IU and he’s now at another crossroads. Depending on the circumstances of his departure from UAB, it’s possible that he’ll get another chance somewhere, but his window of opportunity is getting smaller by the second.

    Bassett was one of my favorite players at IU. I loved his emotion on the court. I hope he figures things out.

  • it's too bad. i always liked Armon, but he's had issues with grades and off-the-court- stuff since he was at Terre Haute South.

    i wish him the best, but i think he needs to concentrate more on getting his life back together rather than where he should play basketball.

    Human nature to be curious. Like an ex-wife or girlfriend, you're always going to wonder what happened.

    Could be grades or could be that he thinks or knows that Davis won't be back next season.

    what about the games he played…and won…for the Hoosiers? Bassett is a real good basketball player and he represented IU well on the floor. It's not Bassett's fault that the IU program is in shambles.

    So count me as someone who is interested.

    Guarantee he is transferring back to the big 10 and used the Recker loop hole to do it
