Report: Bowman Removed From Basketball Team
Reserve guard Tre Bowman has reportedly been removed from the Penn State basketball team for (at least) the fall semester, according to David Jones of the Harrisburg-Patriot News. Jones (@djoneshoop) refers to the move as “a suspension until Chambers sees Bowman’s performance both on and off the court meets his specifications.” No announcement has been made by the Athletic Department.
Jones speculates that Bowman’s grades could have been a factor in the suspension, and also points out that Bowman was involved in an off-court altercation last State Patty’s Day.
To me, it sounds like Coach Chambers is sending a message to his players right away that “ATTITUDE” applies on and off the court. Bowman is only a rising sophomore and has the talent to become a major contributor for the program, so this move seems to indicate that Chambers is letting his players (and recruits) know what it takes to play for Penn State during the “Chambers era”.
Bowman was last seen dunking over a motorbike. Picture via @ben_jones88.
