Towson senior guard Deshaun Morman no longer with program

Towson senior guard Deshaun Morman, a key reserve and an All-Colonial Athletic Association Defensive Team selection last season, is no longer with the program, a team spokesman confirmed to The Baltimore Sun on Thursday.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch (Va.) reported Wednesday that Morman, a Richmond native, would not play in Thursday night’s game at Delaware or Saturday’s game at James Madison. After the Tigers’ 75-71 win over the Blue Hens, Skerry told reporters that his absence would be indefinite.

“He’s just going to focus on graduating right now,” Skerry said, according to Patrick Stevens, a freelance writer who was covering the game. “My big focus with our team is, I want guys to star in the role we have given them. That’s it.”

A team spokesman confirmed his departure.

Morman’s playing time had decreased in his second year since transferring from Cincinnati. After starting 31 of the team's 32 games last season, averaging 25.9 minutes per game, Morman had consistently been one of the first players off the bench for Towson (16-8, 6-5 CAA). In the Tigers' first 23 games, he averaged 7.8 points and 2.8 rebounds on a career-high 49.6 percent shooting from the field in 20.8 minutes per game.

Morman is the second departure from the program this season. Freshman guard Travis Ingram, who had 19 points and 22 rebounds over Towson’s first 16 games, left the team for personal reasons in early January.
