USC Aiken began fall classes today without forward Josh Dollard. The Pacers announced today the All-Peach Belt Conference second-team member has dropped out of college to pursue a professional career.

Dollard played baseketball for one season at USC Aiken after transferring in from Auburn last fall. The Hemingway, S.C., native was dismissed from Auburn for violation of the school's athletic department policy. He sat out the previous season because of what the school described as "medical issues," according to

Dollard started 10 of 31 games for the Pacers. He was suspended for two games for violation of athletic department policy.

Dollard averaged 15.3 points and 7.4 rebounds a game. He also posted nine double-doubles.

He would've been USC Aiken's top returning scorer for this upcoming season. The Pacers now have lost their top six scorers from last year's team, which went 25-8 and advanced to the Division II regional championship game.

Senior forward Seth Leonard now is the school's top returning scorer (3.8 average).

Huge blow for USC Aiken.

Huge blow for USC Aiken. Likely clears the way for ASU to breeze to another conference title.

Sounds to me like a good

Sounds to me like a good thing. He was kicked off of Auburn's team for violating dept policy. Then he came to USCA and got himself suspended for violating their dept policy. Sounds like he needs to go and pursue that "professional" career. We will probably be reading his name in the paper in the future, and not for anything good.

"Senior forward Seth Leonard

"Senior forward Seth Leonard now is the school's top returning scorer (3.8 average)." Now that is funny. Seriously, Dr. Tom Hallman is doing a tremendous job at USCA getting their athletic program to a level higher than has ever been seen. Of course you have to figure anyone who was a high school football team manager (yeah, washing jerseys) and who also read "How to Win Friends and Influence People" during Mr. Blanton's history class would make sure any college he became president of would have good teams.
