Good thing UCLA’s frontcourt depth isn’t an issue. It won’t have one of its key contributors around anymore.
Junior center Anthony Stover was dismissed after being deemed academically ineligible, the school announced Monday.
“We had high expectations for him, and we were looking forward to getting increased contributions from him during this coming season,” coach Ben Howland said in a press release.
The 6-foot-10 Stover only averaged 8.4 minutes in 28 games last season, but he led the Bruins with 39 blocks last season and was a solid option behind center Josh Smith (who’s usually out of shape or in foul trouble).
That leaves UCLA with Smith, Travis and David Wear
and Brendan Lane up front, along with incoming freshman Tony Parker.
