UW Links: Mark McLaughlin’s stay at UW a short oneAugust 10th, 2012 by cstark
Well-traveled Mark McLaughlin is no longer part of the Univeristy of Washington basketball program. The Inglemoor guard has bounced around at a lot of schools (six), and most recently averaged 28.4 points while leading Tacoma CC to the NWAACC Championships.
Here’s the UW release:
“Mark McLaughlin has decided to leave the University of Washington to pursue other opportunities. Although he was only here for a short time, we enjoyed working with Mark and wish him the best in his future endeavors.” -Head Coach Lorenzo Romar
Coach Romar and other school officials will have no further comment at this time.
Here’s the story that published in The Sun in April when he committed to Washington.
Another tough break for UW running back Deonte Cooper, who suffered the third ACL injury of his Husky career.
Art Thiel of Sportspressnw.com says it was an emotional day at Husky football practice on Wednesday. Part of it revolved around Cooper’s injury, and part of it revolved around coach Steve Sarkisian unleashing a series of f-bombs before kicking safety Sean Parker off the field for a dumb play.
