Camron Justice to transfer from Vanderbilt basketball program

New, comments

The departure leaves the Commodores with only nine scholarship players available for the remainder of the season.

This probably wasn’t unexpected.

Justice had appeared in seven games this season for the Commodores and played a total of 65 minutes, scoring 12 points and shooting 4-of-16 from the floor. He also got the dreaded “DNP” in three of the Commodores’ last five games and played a grand total of 11 minutes in that stretch.

Plus, Drew signing two guards in the fall signing class (Max Evans and Saben Lee) and bringing in a transfer guard in Larry Austin Jr. seemed to be a not-so-subtle message to the current guards on the roster.

If we’re being completely honest with ourselves, in the long term, this probably won’t hurt the program much. In the short term, though, Vanderbilt will have only nine scholarship players available for the remainder of the season, and the team is roughly one injury away from Phillip McGloin being forced into action.

Granted, that’s something we probably all want to happen, but still. We wish Camron well.
