Redshirt junior forward Austin Nichols (Collierville, Tenn) has been rejected from the Virginia men’s b-ball program; Tony Bennett reported on Friday, 18th November.
Nichols was at that point suspended for the Cavaliers’ two preseason scrimmages and the season opener at UNCG on Nov. 11.
“It’s an advantage to be a bit of this program, and Austin has lost that power,” Bennett said in a declaration released by UVA. “We have rules for our understudy rivals, and when those benchmarks aren’t met, there are results, and this is the dismal result.”
Nichols played one beguilement at UVA, numbering 11 centres and three bobs back against St. Francis Brooklyn on the 15th of November. He sat out the 2015-16 season in the wake of trading from Memphis.
