Redshirt freshman Cameron Joyce has decided to leave the Kent State men's basketball program and transfer to a different school.
The walk-on, and brother of former Akron Zip star Dru Joyce, ends his Kent State career after having played in four games this season and scoring one point.
"Even though it didn't work out here for me at Kent State as I planned and hoped for I still had a lot of great memories here," Joyce said. "I love my teammates, hope the best for them and the rest of their season. Also I would like to thank the fans for always showing great support."
This leaves Kent State even more depleted at the point guard position with freshman Randal Holt still out after recovering from his knee surgery.
Best of luck to Cam and his future in basketball and his collegiate career.
The Golden Flashes (5-3) will play at Pittsburgh (7-2) tomorrow. Fans can watch the game on ESPNU starting at 2:00 p.m.
Senior guard Rachel Bennett is expected to undergo minor knee surgery today and she will be expected to miss eight to 14 days as she recovers.
Bennett is averaging 6.6 points a game in seven games this season while playing about 29 minutes a game.
The Flashes will host Atlantic-10 foe Temple tomorrow afternoon. The Owls are 8-1 on the season after defeating the Ohio Bobcats last night 65-43. On December 2 the Owls defeated nationally ranked Rutgers 62-51. Temple has also defeated MAC schools Buffalo (65-55) and Eastern Michigan (64-46) this season.
Temple is receiving votes in both national polls with an RPI of 9 as of Friday.
The 15th ranked Kent State wrestling team will host Newberry and Michigan in a tri-meet on Sunday at the M.A.C. Center.
