Gonzaga G Goodson leaving to pursue football

Gonzaga guard Demetri Goodson has requested his release from the

school so he can pursue playing college football at another

school.

Gonzaga announced Goodson’s decision on Tuesday night. Goodson,

who would have been a senior, started all 35 games last season. His

most memorable moment came in the 2009 NCAA tournament when Goodson

scored on a length-of-the-court drive with .9 seconds left to beat

Western Kentucky in the second round.

Goodson averaged 5.2 points and 2.6 assists last season.

Goodson could have two years of football eligibility

remaining.
