Brandon Austin, last season's Public League Markward Award winner, has left the Providence College men's basketball team without playing a game.
Before the season, Austin and a teammate were suspended indefinitely for "not upholding their responsibilities as student-athletes." And in late December, head coach Ed Cooley announced that Austin's suspension would last the entire season.
The 6-foot-6 guard led Imhotep Charter to last season's Public League title and was the MVP of the Panthers third-straight PIAA Class AAA title.
"We wish Brandon success with his basketball career and with his academic future," Cooley said in a statement.
