Per Joey Knight and multiple reports – Sophomore guard Roddy Peters was dismissed by Coach Orlando Antigua tonight. There was no reason given in the release.
More specifically, Peters has been dismissed by Orlando Antigua. Will be seeking 3rd program in as many years. @USFMBB

Peters, after sitting out last year after transferring in from Maryland, played in 10 games this year (8 starts). He missed the remaining 23 games due to a foot fracture that ended his season. In his brief time, he averaged 9.8 PPG and 3.5 APG. After he was sidelined, Jahmal McMurray took over and became a rising star.
Is it the end of the world that Peters is leaving, not really if you are asking me. However, with McMurray exploring his NBA options, it does take away from our depth at point guard. And if McMurray left, it would really hurt the team moving forward with experience at the point. With that said, I wish Roddy the best and the program will move on.
Update, per Knight, the reason for the dismissal was repeated violations of program policy.
