Kent Bazemore is a senior and now his career at Old Dominion has come to an end.
The 6-foot-5 forward was arrested on Wednesday, just prior to the start of Old Dominion’s CIT Quarterfinal match-up against Mercer.
Instead of taking the court for layup lines, Bazemore was headed to the booking room at the local Virginia Beach police headquarters.
Here’s a segment from a report issued by WAVY TV:
Last summer, Kent Bazemore was convicted on a DUI charge, Virginia Beach spokeswoman Margie Hobbs said.
According to court records, Bazemore did not fulfill the conditions of his sentence, which involved attending ASAP classes. A court appearance was scheduled in connection with the missed classes.
When he didn’t show up to court, an arrest warrant was issued.
Hobbs said a Virginia Beach detective drove to the Ted Constant Center Wednesday night, knowing Bazemore would be there.
So, there you have it. Instead of taking the court with his teammates, Bazemore was arrested.
Mercer went on to win the game 79-73, effectively ending ODU’s season and Bazemore’s career in the process.
The Monarchs finished the season at 22-14 overall.
Bazemore has had a terrific career at Old Dominion, and although things ended in a way that is certainly “out of the box,” the senior must now deal with his ongoing legal troubles while also attempting to make his case at the NBA.
DraftExpress.com currently ranks Bazemore at No. 45 among graduating seniors.
What does that mean? He more than likely has no chance at getting drafted in June.
