JONESBORO (10/11/06) - Arkansas State head men’s basketball coach Dickey Nutt has announced that sophomore guard Brandon Ballard has left the team for personal reasons.

Ballard played in 19 games, including 10 as a starter, as a freshman last season. He averaged 5.6 points and 1.7 rebounds per game during the 2005-06 season.

“Naturally, I am very disappointed that Brandon has made this decision not to play basketball,” said Nutt. “It’s a decision that has been weighing on his mind for quite some time now about playing the game of basketball. My door will always be open to Brandon and I wish him all the luck in the world.”
