Southern men's hoops facing hardships ahead
The Southern men's basketball team is dealing with the loss of a couple of key pieces, losses that could be hard to overcome in the years ahead.
Dealing with NCAA restrictions, the Jaguars lost two returning players who opted to transfer due to the team's inability to lay in the NCAA postseason.
Calvin Godfrey and Damien Goodwin both chose to utilize the hardship transfer option and leave Southern with just six scholarship players on their 2014 roster.
Head coach Roman Banks said his coaching staff is working hard to recruit new players to campus and hopes to have a full roster of 13 to 15 players on the team in time for the season to start.
