The message boards were abuzz today about possibly 2 major departures next season. Unfortunately for the Bluejay faithful, Cavel Witter will not be with the team next season. I know a lot of fans were disappointed with him this past season (he was basically forced to play another posistion due to injuries on the team), but personally I was a huge fan of him… Cavel “turned it on” when it counted, most notably against SIU at home and then again at Missouri State. He was so clutch at the end of the game where free-throws counted.
Cavel had some of the fastest hands I have ever seen… it was awesome watching him warm up… he dribbled 2 balls in and out between his legs without even breaking a sweat. The best memory I will have of him is when he dropped a massive 42 points on Bradley last seaon… one of the best games I have ever seen. I for one will really miss him.
Best of luck to you wherever you end up Cavel!
As for Kenton, he isn’t commenting on his future to the press, but rumors speculate that he can’t stand P’Allen so much to the point that he doesn’t want anything to do with the team. This would leave a HUGE gap for us size wise and post depth. This compounds the potential loss of Coach Fish (our recruiting brainchild) to Northern Flordia.
The next few days will be very tense in the Bluejay Nation… Kenton please stay!
UPDATE: More information available here .
Our very own Justin Carter was deemed to have the best dreads in all of college basketball, according to the site Yardbarker.com… you can see the full list of recipients here.
This is hilarious because I remember reading in the paper that part of the deal of signing with Creighton was that Coach Altman had to let him keep his hair, which he had been growing since like middle school… in fact, his mom was even more concerned than Justin was! I also remember reading that everyone on the team was ribbing him about how much he looked like two certain SIU players who will not be mentioned! I was very excited when we signed him.. I thought, “Yes! We have our own predator now!”
Justin was a keystone in the Jays’ success this year, and he will be pivotal next season. He is my favorite player not only because he is from the land of crabcakes (Maryland), but he always plays his heart out. Justin is the kind of player that dives for loose balls, takes charges, and all the other little things that coaches and fans love.
