Corban Collins Released from LSU Basketball team



Collins to Leave Team

quote:

BATON ROUGE – LSU men’s basketball coach Johnny Jones announced on Thursday that guard Corban Collins has left the LSU men’s basketball program and will explore his options to play at another school.

“We have granted a release from LSU to guard Corban Collins,” said Coach Jones. “We appreciate his hard work during his time here and wish him well in the future.”

The guard from High Point, N.C., played 27 games as a freshman for the Tigers during the 2012-13 season with six starts. He averaged 2.6 points and 1.0 rebounds.

Collins scored a combine 30 points in back-to-back December games against Chattanooga and at Boise State, hitting 10-of-22 field goals and 7-of-12 three-pointers as he scored 19 at Boise and 11 versus Chattanooga. For the season he was 12-of-26 from the three-point arc.

Assuming Malik Morgan returns, #LSU now has one open scholarship for 2013-14. Three names are on the board. Head to TSD to learn more.

Yep. It's official now. #LSU has granted PG Corban Collins his release. Collins played only one year for the Tigers.

Will always remember Corban for his hustle, including getting his nose/forehead smashed!
He also did a good job of pushing Anthony and Andre in practice.

Wish him well wherever he goes.

Great guy and teammate, no matter what the reason he is leaving wish him the best and I hope his basketball career becomes what he wants! When everyone on the team says you bring it everyday and hustle your arse off you deserve to be rewarded he did not deserve the criticism he got, as a freshmen I thought he did well just look at the Boise and UT Chatt games, asked to step up and he did.

That was a terribly constructed sentence.

re: Corban Collins Released from LSU Basketball team


Beg to differ. He did deserve criticism. Way too many turnovers and a very loose cannon at times. Just wasn't up to SEC basketball. I think he is a much better fit at a small college. I am sure he is a good guy and wish him the best. The handwriting was on the wall with the new players coming in that he wasn't going to get much playing time. Better that it happens now than when he was a senior like happened to Courtney. With the influx of big men we won't be playing three guards at once anymore. Should be able to get by with Hickey, Stringer, Morgan and Quarterman. If worse comes to worse, Hammink, Bridgewater or Coleman could fill in at two.
