Bulldogs' Idrissi Will Not Return To Basketball Team
ATHENS ---- The scholarship of Georgia basketball player Younes Idrissi will not be renewed for the 2006-07 academic year, according to an announcement Friday by head coach Dennis Felton.
Idrissi, a 6-8 forward from Casablanca, Morocco, would have been a junior on the 2007 Georgia squad. As a sophomore last season, he started in 10 of 30 games, averaging 6.5 points and 3.5 rebounds and shooting 40 percent from the field. He scored in double figures six times, twice getting his career high of 16 points, first against Nevada and later against Alabama.
"In order for our program to continue with its growth and development, we need everyone to put forward an honest effort in being responsible as student-athletes and devoted to our mission for excellence," Felton said. "Although it's not going to work out for Younes to continue on our team, we wish him the best in his future endeavors."
Idrissi averaged 3.4 points in 27 games as a freshman in the 2004-05 season.
