Missouri State men’s basketball player Lamont Austin has dropped from the Bears’ basketball squad for personal reasons
and will not return to school at Missouri State for the spring semester, Bears’ head coach Barry Hinson has announced.
Austin, a freshman guard from Topeka, Kan., played in two of the Bears’ first seven games, seeing a total of 14 minutes of
action in the contests at Arkansas and at home against UNC Wilmington. He had two rebounds and no points. Austin suffered
a broken bone in his right foot in practice Dec. 9 and was expected to be out of action for the rest of the season.
