    Pomlee Dismissed: Official Release

    AMES, Iowa- Iowa State redshirt freshman L.A. Pomlee has been dismissed from the team for multiple violations of team rules, ISU head mens basketball coach Greg McDermott announced today.

    We appreciate L.A.s contributions to the program over the last year, McDermott said. My staff and I will continue to support him in any way possible and wish him nothing but the best in the future.

    Pomlee, a native of Davenport, Iowa, sat out last season as a redshirt. Pomlee played a total of 32 minutes in eight games this year, averaging 0.9 points and 1.1 rebounds.

    Damn, too bad. I was looking forward him giving us some depth in the front court next year.

    Yeah he had potential to play 5 minutes a game by the time he was a senior.

    Wasn't he a risk for this type of thing when he was recruited?

    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    IIRC, Pomlee's only risk was he had blood clots in his legs that could have been a health issue. I don't recall any other baggage of any sorts.

    And I think Thuggins at WVU recruited him, too, so that would support this thought.

    Re: Pomlee Dismissed: Official Release

    I was wondering if something wasn't going on with LA. Alex Dorr a true freshman, walkon seemed to be getting playing before him, a RS Freshman on scholie. Frankly, Dorr hasn't looked too bad but depth next year is really gonna be a problem. Man, wonder if there are any quality JC players we could still get for next year.

    Didnt he have trouble getting the grades to get into college. That was the rumored reason other schools backed off and why he signed with ISU so late.

    Does this open up a scholarship?

    Yes. I bet it is already spoken for though.
