Flores leave JMU, citing family issues

James Madison men’s basketball head coach Matt Brady on Monday announced that junior forward Trevon Flores (Harvey, La./Helen Cox) has left the team due to personal reasons.

“We’re sensitive to Trevon’s need to be with his family right now,” commented Brady. “He has had a difficult time since his mother’s passing over the summer and feels strongly that he should be with his family in Ohio. We’re appreciative of the three years he’s dedicated to JMU men’s basketball and wish him best of luck in whatever path his life takes.”

Flores, who lists Louisiana as his home but has much of his family in Ohio, split time during his two and a half seasons with the Dukes between a role as a starter and a reserve. He has played in 55 games with 28 starts and started four of the five games he played in this year while averaging 12.0 minutes per game.

For his career, Flores averaged 2.8 points and 2.4 rebounds per game with 13.7 minutes per game. He shot 44 percent from the floor for his career and ranks second among active players for career blocked shots with 47. His best statistical season came as a freshman when he averaged 3.8 points and 3.0 rebounds in nearly 18 minutes per game while blocking 37 shots.
