Senior forward Terrance Shannon has left the VCU men’s basketball team for personal reasons. The news was announced Tuesday evening through a press release from the athletics department.
“We thank Terrance for his contributions to the program and wish him luck in his future endeavors,” Coach Smart said.
Shannon played four years at Florida State before transferring to VCU for graduate school. He averaged 2.9 PPG and 2.3 RPG. On opening night against Illinois State he played a season-high 23 minutes and scored a season-high 14 points.
He started the first six games of the season before missing three games for personal reasons. His role diminished upon his return but his energy and ability to make hustle plays was both valuable and frequently noticed by the fans. He missed three games at the end of January with a sprained knee. Since his return, he’s played 21 total minutes in the past five games while scoring zero points.
Shannon has now exhausted all of his eligibility.
