Blog – Black leaves MSU basketball team



Oliver Black is no longer on the men’s Mississippi State basketball team according to a team spokesperson.

The news was first reported by the Clarion Ledger late Tuesday night.

Black is the second Bulldog form last year’s team to leave. Guard Maurice Dunlap left in May.

Black played in 31 games and drew four starts. The forward averaged just 1.8 points and 2.4 rebounds as a true freshman last season.

Both Black and Dunlap were recruited by former Bulldog head coach Rick Ray. New head coach Ben Howland took over in April.
