Forward Aaric Murray leaves WVU
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — West Virginia forward Aaric Murray has left the Mountaineers after one season.
Coach Bob Huggins announced Murray’s departure Monday but didn’t give a reason. He says it was a mutual agreement that it would be in Murray’s best interest to finish his college career elsewhere.
The 6-foot-10 Murray averaged 8.8 points and 5.9 rebounds last season as a junior. He transferred to West Virginia from La Salle and sat out the 2011-12 season.
Murray is the fifth player to leave from last season’s team.
Guards Jabarie Hinds and Aaron Brown and forwards Keaton Miles and Volodymyr Gerun also asked for their release.
The Mountaineers went 13-19 last season, the worst record in Huggins’ 31 years as a head coach.
Steelers’ Pouncey apologizes for hat
PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh Steelers All-Pro center Maurkice Pouncey has apologized for wearing a baseball cap supporting former college teammate Aaron Hernandez.
Pouncey and his twin brother Mike, a center for the Miami Dolphins, were photographed wearing hats that read “Free Hernandez” during their co-birthday party in Miami on Saturday night.
Hernandez played at the University of Florida with the Pounceys from 2007-09. The former New England Patriots tight end is charged with murder in the killing of Boston semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty.
Maurkice Pouncey posted on his Twitter account Monday he understands the “seriousness of the situation involving my former teammate.” Pouncey added he regrets making light of the situation and apologized if he offended anyone.
The Steelers had no immediate comment.
