Juwan Howard Jr. Leaving W. Michigan For Personal Reasons

KALAMAZOO, Mich. — Juwan Howard Jr. is leaving the Western Michigan basketball team.

The school’s athletic department says the sophomore forward will not return for the fall semester because of personal reasons. Coach Steve Hawkins says the program stands “100 percent” behind the decision Howard and his family made.

Western Michigan went 21-13 last season, and the 6-foot-6 Howard averaged 9.3 points.
