Keron DeShields has left the Montana program, electing to use his remaining year of eligibility at a different school, according to multiple reports.
The 6-foot-2 guard was third on the team and scoring, and would have been one of the Grizzlies top returning players for next season along with Jordan Gregory. He was a member on two teams that qualified for the NCAA tournament, tallying 24 minutes of action in blowout losses in the Round of 64 to Wisconsin and Syracuse in consecutive years. Despite not reaching the Big Dance in 2014, the Grizzlies finished second in the Big Sky Conference.
DeShields, the Baltimore native, committed to Montana, one of the only Division I programs to offer him a scholarship during his post graduate year at Vermont Academy.
He averaged 11.8 points, 2.7 rebound and 2.5 assists in 31.2 minutes per game during the 2013-2014 campaign.
