The Maine Black Bears have released three players from their program, according to a story in Thursdayâ€™s edition of the Bangor Daily News.
Sophomore forwards Lem Randall, Keif Orsini and Glenn Belmore have been released from the team, according to the article.
â€œItâ€™s always disappointing when you have to let a player go from a team, particularly in this case because these are three great kids with bright futures,â€ said Maine head coach Tim Whitehead. â€œLem is an outstanding student and the other two have improved academically each year. However, as a coaching staff, we felt this was in the best interest of the team.â€
In two seasons, Randall has scored 11 points in 55 games for the Black Bears. Orsini registered nine points 56 games, while Belmore played just 37 games in two seasons, scoring five points.
According to the report, Whitehead said he will honor the partial scholarships that each player receive should they decide to return to the school.
