As Dayton’s “small ball seven” moves deeper into the Atlantic 10 basketball season, they will likely do so without junior college transfer Detwon Rogers.
Following Saturday’s home with against Richmond, Archie Miller told the media of Rogers’ latest development.
“He wasn’t at the game tonight based on an academic situation he’s been dealing with,” Miller said. “We held him out out the game. Right now he’s going to be on a day-to-day basis.”
Rogers was recovering from patellar tendonitis during the fall 2014 semester, and did not play for Dayton. Miller told the media that Rogers was unavailable due to his lack of playing time in the team’s weekly practices.
However, Miller cleared up the cloudy situation Saturday.
“He’s going to have to get his acadmics in order in terms of what we expect from our guys everyday.”
On the possibility of the College of Southern Idaho transfer redshirting this year, Miller was unsure. But the 2014-15 season, was out of the question.
“I doubt very highly he’ll play one minute this year,” Miller said. “Where that goes from there, I don’t know.”
Rogers has not played in any games for Dayton this year.
