Guard Antoine Allen transferring

The University of Miami announced Wednesday that freshman guard Antoine Allen has decided to transfer and pursue basketball at another school. 

Antoine Allen Allen, a 6-1 guard from the same AAU program Jack McClinton played for in Baltimore, averaged 2.9 points and 0.8 rebounds while converting 41.7 percent from long range in 17 appearances last season. He was named to the All-ACC Academic Men’s Basketball Team.

“I appreciate Antoine’s efforts this season,” UM coach Frank Haith said in prepared statement. “I support his decision to seek additional playing time with another program and I wish him well.”

The Canes return nine players including four starters -- Durand Scott, Reggie Johnson, DeQuan Jones and Julian Gamble -- who helped the team reach the semifinals of the ACC Tournament. Allen played one minute against Wake Forest in the ACC Tournament and had not played at all before that since the trip to Maryland on Jan. 26.

Who cares....Unless he plays G on the football team

good luck where ever you go

It is comming apart for Haith. He better hire a good x's & o's coach this off season to help with game planning.

Is the Herald going to update the UM Football app?
Maybe the updated roster? Changing to 2010?
And removing links to pay sites for Cane news!

yet another reason why Haith must be replaced, this kid has a ton of talent yet instead of redshirting him he got garbage time creating frustration for the young man

After watching the McDonalds All American game last night-you have two of the best in the nation at their respective positions in Brandon Knight and Fab Melo,both of whom are from 954!

Haith has to do a better job of recruiting in his own backyard.

I think he KNOWS that next season, he won't see much playing time...UM is going to have a seasoned team back, after the experiences they went through this year. Reggie Johnson, Durand Scott, DeQ Jones, Julian Gamble, Mal Grant...this team should be in the top four in the ACC next year.....IF NOT, I think Coach "H" might have to find work elswhere, really.
Enough mediocrity at UM...that goes for football too.
UM has never settled for mediorcity in football, baseball, and we shouldn't have to do so in basketball either.

Zero comments after two days? Surprising.

I guess he won't be missed much with that 1 minute of meaningful effort...
