Delaware will have to move on next season without potential CAA Player of the Year Jarvis Threatt, as the junior guard was dismissed from the Blue Hens in a release from the school on Tuesday.
The 6-foot-2 Threatt appeared in 25 games for the Blue Hens last season and averaged 18 points, 5.8 rebounds, 5.4 assists and 2.5 steals per game. The speedy guard also shot 41 percent from the field and 21 percent from the three-point line on the season.
Threatt missed nine games during the 2013-14 season due to multiple suspensions but returned in time for the CAA Conference Tournament, where he won Tournament MVP honors in helping Delaware make the 2014 NCAA Tournament with a win over William & Mary.
An ironman when he was with the team, Threatt averaged 37.1 minutes per game as a junior and scored 14 points on 2-for-9 shooting in a Round of 64 loss to Michigan State.
The dismissal from the program for Threatt on Tuesday comes “due to violations of team rules.” Schools officials have no further comment on the matter, according to the release.
