Updated: Malcolm Washington Leaves M Hoops Team


Sophomore point guard Malcolm Washington, son of Denzel, chose to leave the Penn men's basketball team, according to a Penn basketball source.

As of the beginning of September he was no longer listed on the Quakers' roster.

Washington struggled in the few minutes he accrued during his freshman year, seeing little playing time behind unanimous all-Ivy point guard Zack Rosen. Washington started one game in Rosen's place when the Rosen was briefly benched for a violation of team rules.

Beyond his meager statistics (a .157 clip in shooting) Malcolm's future role on the team became questionable with the announcement of a large incoming freshman class ripe with supposed guard talent.

The roster now sits at 20 players, still five above the League travel limit, but with injuries the Quakers will likely not have too much trouble making weight.

No word as to whether Denzel will continue to travel to Philly to watch the Quakers in the flesh as he did for about half of last season.
