Boise State Broncos junior guard Dezmyn Trent was arrested in his hometown of Tacoma, Washington for his role in a drive-by shooting and has been subsequently dismissed from the team.
Dave Southorn of the Idaho Statesman reported Trent’s arrest on Twitter, and Geoff Grammer of the Albuquerque Journal reported his dismissal from the program, which was announced by Broncos head coach Leon Rice.
Trent averaged 3.5 points and shot 35 percent from the field over nine minutes per game last season as Boise State went 25-9 (14-4 MWC) and made the NCAA Tournament as a No. 11 seed, losing a heartbreaker to No. 11 Dayton in the First Four.
Now, instead of competing for extended minutes next season, it’s looking like he will be trying to figure out his future, be it heading to junior college or trying to latch on with another NCAA program.
Just what Trent’s role in the drive-by shooting was remains to be seen and few details have been given apart from the fact that he was arrested, but Campus Sports will update this story as more information becomes available.
