Teddy Buckets Leaves Team

Morgantown, West Virginia – Moments ago, former West Virginia basketball player Teddy “Buckets” Allen left the University of Nebraska after nearly breaking the school’s scoring record less than a week ago.

Allen, who played for the Mountaineers during the 2017-2018 season, left West Virginia following his freshman year in Morgantown.  At West Virginia, Allen averaged 7.0 points and 2.7 rebounds per game and often clashed with Bob Huggins.

Last week, Allen, a junior, scored 41 points in one game and was the team’s leading scorer, averaging 16.4 points and 4.7 rebounds per game for the Cornhuskers.

In his statement, Allen said the following about leaving the team: “After a lot of thought over the last few days, I have made the decision to focus on getting fully healthy in preparation for the next step in my basketball journey,” Allen said. “I will continue to stay at Nebraska for the spring semester and work toward graduation. I am looking forward to what the future holds, as I explore my options.”

What an absolutely bizarre ending to Allen’s time at Nebraska!  With that said, we wish Teddy Buckets nothing but the best as his continues to navigate his fascinating college basketball career.
