Sophomore guard Alexia Standish has left Texas A&M. Odd release from the school:
The Texas A&M women’s basketball team lost half its returning starters from last season’s NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 team when sophomore point guard Alexia Standish quit the team Monday.
“She’s just lost the passion for the game,” A&M head coach Gary Blair said. “I hate to see it because of all the hard work she had to put in it because of the knee surgery.”
Standish was recovering from offseason surgery to repair a torn ACL she suffered her junior season at Colleyville Heritage High School. She will remain in school at A&M and has no plans to transfer, Blair said.
