Strowbridge leaves Gamecocks

Jacksonville State's already limited basketball roster took a hit Wednesday when junior guard Jay-R Strowbridge left the team for what Gamecocks coach James Green called "personal reasons."

Second semester classes at JSU began Wednesday.

The Gamecocks' numbers already were limited by APR scholarship sanctions, and walkon guard Samir Rolley is out with a knee injury.

Green declined to elaborate on the nature of the decision or the impact it would have on a club.

"What's always been my philosophy is we play with who we have on any given night, in any given year." he said.

When asked who gets more playing time following Strowbridge's departure, Green said "everybody." The Gamecocks now have eight available players on their roster.

Strowbridge, a Huntsville product, regained his eligibility this season after transferring from Nebraska. He played his first college game in 20 months in the Gamecocks' exhibition with West Georgia.

He was the Gamecocks' third-leading scorer, averaging 12.5 points in 12 games.
