Senior point guard Cody Doolin has left the USF Dons basketball team, according to CSNBayArea.com.
The university said Tuesday that Doolin will remain enrolled and is on target to graduate in the spring with a degree in finance.
Doolin did not accompany the Dons on their recent two-game road trip to Montana and Oregon last weekend.
His departure is a big loss for the Dons in the suddenly rugged West Coast Conference. He was averaging 13 points and seven assists a game through the first four games of the season for 3-3 USF.
He scored a career-high 33 points in a 92-90 loss to Nevada at War Memorial Gym on Nov. 15.
“I respect Cody’s decision to devote more time to other matters in his life that will require his attention away from basketball,” coach Rex Walters said in a statement. “Cody has been such a big part of the basketball program since the day he arrived at USF. I want nothing but the best for him and truly appreciate the time, energy and passion he had in his time here. He did great things on and off the court and I know that he will do great things after graduating in the spring. We will miss him and he will always be a USF Don.”
Doolin, who was one of two players featured on the cover of the team’s media guide this season, finishes his career with 451 assists, second in school history behind Orlando Smart’s 902 from 1990-94, and 154 steals, third on the school’s all-time list.
