Freshman Michael Sams will not be returning to the Illinois State basketball team next year. He is the third member of the 2003-04 Redbirds who will not be a part of next year’s squad.
According to the Bloomington Pantagraph, Sams, a 6-7 forward from Mt. Zion, did not get his scholarship renewed for next year. Scholarships are for one year, and must be renewed every year. In most cases, scholarships are automatically renewed. Sams played in just seven games this past season.
Sams joins Chris Burras, who is transferring, and Kevin Troc, who’s career was ended by injury, as players not returning to the Illinois State basketball program.
