James Madison announced on Thursday evening that two reserves from the school’s first NCAA tournament appearance in nearly 20 years will not return to the program in 2013-14.

Forward Enoch Hood and guard Arman Marks, both of whom saw limited playing time as sophomores, will transfer. Hood saw action in 25 games this season, averaging 3.0 points and 1.9 rebounds in just over 11 minutes per game. Marks played in just nine games for the Dukes, averaging 1.0 points and 0.8 rebounds per game.

“Enoch and Arman have been integral members of the James Madison men’s basketball program for the last two years,” head coach Matt Brady stated in the release.

“This was a mutually agreeable decision that allows both young men to pursue a new opportunity that fits their pursuit of academic and athletic success. We thank them both for their contributions and wish them well.”

Hood started 15 games during his time at JMU, but even with the departures of forwards A.J. Davis, Rayshawn Goins and Alioune Diouf the battle for more minutes would have been an uphill one for the Norfolk native.

Forwards Jackson Kent, Thomas Rivard and Paulius Satkus have all signed a National Letter of Intent to attend James Madison according to VerbalCommits.com.
