St. Bonaventure just announced that junior Lewis Leonard is transferring from the school, a decision that was long anticipated.
St. Bonaventure was in dire need of scoring when Leonard committed to the school from San Bernardino Valley (Calif.) College. Leonard scored more than 1,000 points as a freshman and sophomore at the junior college and led the state in scoring with a 25.2 points per game average as a sophomore.
But Leonard has been a major disappointment since coming to Bona. His deficiencies on defense limited his playing time as he appeared in only nine games last season and averaged just 3.6 minutes of playing time.
In April, Leonard, along with junior Malcolm Eleby, sophomore Da'Quan Cook and freshman Brett Roseboro were charged with harassment and disorderly conduct as a result of a March 21 fight with two Jamestown Community College-Olean basketball players. The players are expected to appear in court on Monday.
