Player Dismissal[edit]

On January 18, 2012 Josh Watkins was dismissed for his second violation of team rules within the same season. The first offense on December 6, 2011 led to Watkins being suspended for one game. Coach Krystkowiak would state that the program must always come first and that the integrity of the program cannot be sacrificed for one player.[1]
