J'mison Morgan Dismissed From UCLA Basketball Team

March 30, 2010

LOS ANGELES - UCLA men's basketball head coach Ben Howland announced today that 6-foot-10-inch sophomore center J'mison Morgan will not be returning next season. Morgan, from Dallas and South Oak Cliff High School will transfer to play his final years at another school.

Morgan will leave UCLA immediately and hasn't made a decision as to where he will transfer.

"I feel that it is in the best interest of this program and for J'mison Morgan that he no longer be a part of this team," Howland said. "We are supportive of him and his future in whatever direction he decides to go."

Morgan averaged 2.1 points and 1.1 rebounds per game while appearing in 40 contests without making a start during his career with the Bruins (2008-09 and 2009-10). He played in 280 minutes (7.0 minutes per game) while shooting 46.1 percent (35-for-76) from the field and 38.9 percent (14-for-36) from the free-throw line in his two seasons. He scored his personal-best of eight points in a home win over FIU on Nov. 29, 2008 and grabbed a career-high five rebounds this year in the home win over New Mexico State (Dec. 15, 2009).
