On Tuesday morning, head coach Chris Beard announced that redshirt sophomore Joel Ntambwe had left the Red Raider men’s basketball team.
Ntambwe, who redshirted last season due to the NCAA denying his waiver, had played in 41 minutes over three games this season.
The decision for Ntambwe’s departure was due to “personal reasons and what is best for his family”, according to a statement released by Tech Athletics.
“We appreciate Joel’s contributions to our basketball program,” Beard said in the statement released by Tech Athletics. “We wish Joel the best in his future. I’ll personally be pulling for him to succeed in his next step.”
