Lawrence to leave UC
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- What Local 12 reported last week is official on Tuesday.
Sophomore forward Jermaine Lawrence (Springfield Gardens, N.Y./Pope John XXIII High School [N.J.]) has decided to leave the University of Cincinnati and the mens basketball program, Bearcats head coach Mick Cronin has announced.
I'm leaving UC because my father is ill, Lawrence said. I want to be closer to him as well as be close enough where I can have him and my mom attend my games. We appreciate everyones support.
Lawrence played in 26 games without a start, averaging 2.8 points and 2.9 rebounds in 15.1 minutes. He scored a season-high nine points against Kennesaw State on Nov. 29 and grabbed a season-best eight rebounds against NC State on Nov. 12. Lawrence missed eight games from Jan. 7 through Feb. 2 due to a toe injury.
We have been praying for Jermaine's father and understand the situation, Cronin said. We wish Jermaine all the best.
