Rockets lose four players in one day

It was a big day for the University of Toledo Rockets Mens' basketball program Thursday. Not one, but four players were bumped off the roster in one day.

UT Mens' head coach Tod Kowalczyk announced that players Larry Bastfield, Ian Salter, Josh Freelove and Neil Watson will not return to the program next year. The players, including Salter who is a Clay High School graduate, have all been given permission to seek transfer, according to reports.

Kowalcyzk has told reporters that he is taking the team in a direction and felt this change was necessary.

Thursday's move now marks six total players from this year's squad that will not return next season.
