We just talked about the Kansas State Wildcats being the most disappointing team in college basketball this year and this news should strengthen that argument: Wally Judge is leaving the basketball program.
Indeed, head coach Frank Martin announced to the media Monday afternoon that Judge was simply unhappy and decided to leave the program. Via Kellis Robinett of the KC Star:
"Wally quit the team today. He's not happy. I kinda saw it coming because of some of his emotional situations."
This isn't a devastating blow for Kansas State this year because Judge wasn't a major contributor. He played 17 minutes against the Kansas Jayhawks on Saturday scoring five points on 1-of-7 shooting. That was the most he had played since January 8 -- and he didn't play at all in two games during that stretch.
Judge averaged 5.5 points and 3.8 rebounds per game this year. The sophomore averaged 3.3 points and three rebounds per game as a freshman.
Judge missed several games early in the season for what Martin called "personal issues" though he made sure to note that it was not a suspension.
So Kansas State's bad season is getting worse. The 14-8 Wildcats have lost five of their last seven games and stand just 2-5 in the Big 12.
