St. Louis guard leaving team, again

St. Louis, MO (Sports Network) – Saint Louis University guard Reggie Bryant,
the team’s leading scorer at 13.8 points per game, has been granted an
indefinite leave of absence.

“The information that we have is that Reggie’s brother, George Jr., has been
hospitalized,” head coach Brad Soderberg said Friday. “Reggie flew to
Baltimore Wednesday night to be with his family. Until Reggie informs us of
his plans, we don’t know when he will return to the team. At this point, our
prayers are with Reggie and his family.”

Bryant missed a game last season because of an illness in the family.
