Auburn Guard Andre Malone Leaves Program

Posted by CoHoops DeAnte Mitchell
Two years after signing his National Letter of Intent to attend Auburn University and play for head coach Tony Barbee and the Auburn Tigers (5-7), Andre Malone decided it was best to find another program to play his final two years of College Basketball.

Malone participated in 11 games this season logging an average of 25-minutes per outing.

He was also the second leading scorer with 11.7 points a game, while adding 3.4 rebounds, and nailing 44 percent of his three point attempts.

His career high came during the second game of the season where he poured in 28-points, and four rebounds in a 79-68 loss to Samford.

Head coach Tony Barbee commented on the sophomore leaving the program by saying "He just felt it wasn't the right fit, and I agree."

Malone had offers from programs like Cincinatti, LSU, Mississippi, South Carolina, and Xavier. All those programs are familiar with Malone as a player, and could have a possibility of landing the 6-foot-5 guard.
