Juan Pattillo Dismissed from the OU Basketball Team

Well it started off as a rumor yesterday, but has crescendoed to a legitimate story today. Courtesy of the Oklahoman:

Juan Pattillo, expected to contend for a starting spot next season, was dismissed Sunday from OU’s basketball squad.

Sooners coach Jeff Capel announced Patillo’s dismissal for violation of team rules in a released statement and said he’d have no comment. Pattillo was suspended one game during the regular season for similar cause, believed to be academic related.

This is unfortunate, as Pattillo played well at times this past season. I was expecting with another year of seasoning that he could develop into a good wing player.

I do appreciate the fact that Jeff Capel runs a tight ship though. That should bode well for the future of the program. Still, sad to see Pattillo go.
