Chris Jones and Jordan Williams, two key members of North Texas’ highly rated freshman class who have started most of the season, did not meet academic eligibility requirements in the first semester of the school year and will not play for the Mean Green the remainder of the season, head coach Johnny Jones confirmed on Tuesday.
Both Jones and Williams will remain with the team and work to regain their eligibility heading into next season.
Vito pretty much says what everyone is thinking: We were just hitting our stride as a team and it will be tough to extend the 20-win season streak that was going to be tough anyway. I don’t know their circumstances so I will not comment on the two guys’ academic work habits and abilities. I’m sure they are getting all the speeches they can stand right now.
