Northern Illinois head coach announced on Tuesday that freshman Akeem Springs has left the program.

“Akeem Springs has left the Northern Illinois basketball team for personal and family reasons,” said Montgomery. “We wish Akeem all the best in the future.”

Springs was averaging 7.7 points and 2.9 boards this season.

The Huskies are just 5-15 this season and have twice set an NCAA record for the fewest points scored in a half. I wonder if either of those facts played a role in Springs’ decision to leave?
