    We're Not the Only Team to Have a Player Leave Mid-Year

    Pierre Henderson-Niles' exit leaves Memphis Tigers in a bind - ESPN

    That huge dude for Memphis left with only 8 games left, and their team still in the hunt for an NCAA bid. This guy wasn't a starter, so it's not quite the same deal as Lucca, but its nice to see we aren't the only team to have this happen to. Lucca left for Germany, and this guy might have left to join the professional eating circuit.

    Guess I don't understand your point. Memphis is a good team, and they play in a conference where their talent is far better than the competition.

    Not sure I needed to have a point...we had a guy quit in the middle of the year, so did another team. There was alot of "woe is Iowa State" afterwards, acting like we are the only team this happens to. It happened to another team, I thought it was noteworthy.

    And actually to correct the original statement, Pierre was a starter. He had started something like the last 15 games. Now was he the most talented post player we had...nope...but he was a starter!!

    also this leaves Memphis down to seven scholarship players...but contrary to ISU they have something like five or six walk-ons on top of the seven players but the seven scholarships also include a kid who just played his first game in a Memphis uniform on Saturday after coming back from an ACL tear!
