Eleby leaves St. Bonaventure amid probe

St. Bonaventure officials say starting point guard Malcolm

Eleby, one of four players charged in connection with a stabbing

earlier this year, has left the basketball program.

Head coach Mark Schmidt said Eleby, of Philadelphia, won’t

return for his senior season in 2010-11.

Eleby is the second player to leave the school after being

charged in connection with an on-campus stabbing that injured two

men. Guard Lewis Leonard left last month. Da’Quan Cook and Brett

Roseboro also each face at least one count of harassment and

disorderly conduct.

Two men were treated for stab wounds after the March 21


Eleby started 57 games for the Bonnies, averaging 5.2 points,

2.7 assists and 2.5 rebounds a game.
