Tensions with program rising Hamm appeared to be a healthy scratch in Tuesday's 80-77 victory over Kansas State, 247 Sports reports.
Impact Hamm was given a start back on Jan. 26 when the Texas frontcourt was in dire straits due to COVID-19 protocol, but he's seen his playing time significantly diminish with the return of Greg Brown and Jericho Sims. The frustrations regarding playing time seemed to boil over, as Hamm allegedly tweeted "loyalty means nothing nowadays!" from his personal twitter account before later deleting the post. Commenting on the situation, coach Shaka Smart relayed that Hamm didn't do anything wrong, but that he was instead looking to get Jase Febres and Kamaka Hepa some playing time. It's unclear if there will be additional consequences for Hamm extending into Saturday's matchup against TCU.
