Basil Smotherman and Purdue Part Ways

On Sunday morning, it was announced that redshirt junior Basil Smotherman was no longer a member of the Purdue Men鈥檚 Basketball team.

 

Coach Matt Painter said in a statement, 鈥淭here are standards and expectations that our student-athletes must follow and Basil has not met these guidelines. We have mutually agreed the best route for him is to no longer be a member of our squad.鈥

 

As many fans know, this was not the first time that Smotherman has been in trouble with the team. He served a suspension at the beginning of the year due to an arrest for possession of paraphernalia.

 

Smotherman was seeing less playing time in recent games but was well-liked by fans for his flashy play and videoboard show 鈥淐ooking with Basil.鈥
