WACO, Texas - Baylor men's basketball freshman Givon Crump has decided to transfer and will not return to the team for his sophomore season, head coach Scott Drew announced Thursday. Crump, a native of Washington, D.C., averaged 0.5 points and 1.1 rebounds in 15 games as a reserve forward in 2009-10.
"We want to thank Givon for his contributions to our team and helping achieve such a special season on the court," Drew said. "We wish him the best of luck in all of his future endeavors."
Crump came to Baylor after spending two seasons at Brewster Academy in Brewster, N.H., where he led the program to back-to-back berths in the National Prep Championship semifinals. He was a junior on the Brewster team that captured the New England Class A Championship, finishing with a 31-4 record in 2007-08.
"I want to thank all the Baylor people for making me feel so at home here," Crump said. "I will never forget this season and I am grateful for the friends I have made. I also want to thank my teammates for being great leaders and helping me become a better basketball player.
"Also, to head coach Scott Drew and the Baylor coaching staff, thank you for all your hard work and for helping me become a better player and better person."
