Report: Villanova’s Tony Chennault to transfer … again

Leave a comment

Villanova point guard Tony Chennault is reportedly transferring out of the program, according to Jeff Goodman.

Chennault left Wake Forest last offseason to transfer closer to his Philly home, and he was granted a waiver by the NCAA that allowed him to become immediately eligible. Chennault likely would not be getting a waiver again this year, which means that he’ll have to transfer down a level if he wants to play immediately.

Chennault was expected to the be starter this season, but the play of freshman Ryan Arcidiacono, who was coming off of back surgery, was impressive enough that Chennault was forced to the bench for much of the season. He averaged 3.6 points in just over 18 minutes this year.

He is the second player to transfer out of Villanova this month. Achraf Yacoubou left right before the Final Four.

VIDEO: John Calipari ejected 2:26 into game, held back by players

It only took 2:26 for John Calipari to get tossed for the second straight game at South Carolina.

But why he get ejected, I have no idea.

A foul was called on South Carolina. Then Coach Cal was given a technical foul for … something. That’s when this first video picks up, when Cal goes at the referee that gave him the first T, says a few magic words and gets rung up a second time.

That’s when he really loses it, having to get held back by his own players to keep him from going after the officials.

If anyone has any insight into why Cal lost his mind, please let us know. Because we’re lost.

Georgetown announced on Saturday that senior center Bradley Hayes will be out indefinitely after breaking his left hand in practice on Thursday.

“It is a blow to our team, but I’m very disappointed for Bradley because of the heard work he has put in over the last four years to put himself in a position to have a good senior year,” Georgetown head coach John Thompson III said in a release. “He had successful surgery today and we expect him to fully recover but we’re not sure when he’ll return.”

The 7-foot-0 native of Jacksonville was putting together a very solid senior season before the injury. Hayes averaged 21.4 minutes per contest in which he put up 8.5 points and grabbed 6.6 rebounds per game. After playing sparringly during his first three seasons at Georgetown, Hayes has become a key interior piece for the Hoyas this season.

Without Hayes in the lineup, freshman Jessie Govan will get more minutes and have a chance to be the go-to post player in the Georgetown rotation.
