Shawn Jackson has decided to leave the Iona basketball team, the school announced on Tuesday.

Jackson, a 6-foot-9, 250 lb forward, had started eight games this season, but he was only averaging 1.8 points and 2.6 boards per game. The JuCo transfer from Northwest Florida didn’t play in three of the last five games and had seen his minutes cut into severely over the last six games.

That just so happens to coincidence with the arrival of transfer David Laury.

Laury has averaged 15.6 points and 9.2 boards in the six games since he’s gotten eligible.
