|ISU Losing 3 Players
|NORMAL, Ill. (AP) -- Three players have left Illinois State's basketball team this week.
The Pantagraph in Bloomington reports sophomore center Jordan Threloff is the latest to walk away from the Redbirds. Threloff said Tuesday he will transfer.
Earlier, junior forwards Jon Ekey and Zeke Upshaw announced they will leave the Redbirds after the team's 18-15 season.
Threloff played in 21 games this season but only two as a starter. Ekey played in 33 games, including 18 starts. Upshaw played in 19 games, all off the bench.
Illinois State coach Dan Muller said he wishes the three players well and called them "good kids."
The Redbirds now have five open scholarships.
