2010 Commit Tristan Thompson Kicked off Basketball team

Bumped. --PB--

Very unfortunate news ($). I hope this does not affect his commitment to Texas in anyway.

"He was kicked off the team for public insubordination," Coach Hurley told Adam Zagoria of ZagsBlog.

"That's the state of basketball. The kid came here as an unknown kid with potential and as an intelligent kid who is very likable. The problem in our sport now is that as kids get better and as their ranking rises, the people around these kids ruin them."

"After the incident last night, Coach Hurley felt that Tristan publicly disrespected him, and Tristan felt that Coach Hurley publicly disrespected him."

Russell reaffirmed Thompson's commitment to Texas, and said the junior prospect will finish the year at St. Benedict's and then find a new school for next year.
