Per Jeff Goodman: "Dayton has kicked starting center Jalen Robinson and backup big Devon Scott off the team for dorm room theft incident, sources told ESPN."
They have nobody bigger than 6'6 on their roster now in result of this news.

The A10 keeps taking hits.

I think the last team hit with a dormroom theft incident was St Bona in the late 80's, so Dayton isn't even being very original.

We will have to wait and see how long the suspension stands. VCU set a horrible precendent early this season with a two game suspension for stealing a cell phone.

Meant "precedent" . Too quick with the keyboard.

Reports I've seen say zero chance of return.

A series of thefts. Not just a stupid mistake, or two, or three. Too bad. You get a gift of educational opportunities, and you blow it. Not smart.

MSC, I assume that by "a horrible precedent," you mean the penalty was too lenient, right?

Yes ELJ, I thought VCU was too lenient in their penalty.

If they immediately transfer to VCU, molder of men Shaka will punish them by making them sit until the first TV timeout.

I am going long on the Bonnies.... I say maybe 6 or 7 and not 10. I think that they are the best dog out there right now. Who knows with Dayton. They may discover some magic with a small line up. All of a sudden, so many A10 squads are looking sad. LaSalle/American box score is a marvel through which to read. You look at it and you see how a team like Dayton can win games just by not going out ot their way to lose them.

That's why I say rank em after the first semester grades have landed. Rosters look different in January than they did in October.

This news drafts nicely with the get of the ledge thread. This increases the chance the GW wins our first regular season A-10 title since 05-06 despite road struggles. Wouldn't call us the favorite by any means with VCU struggling against any team that can handle the ball, it certainly is in play.
