Georgia State guard D’Marcus Simonds says he will likely not be back with the Panthers next year. He told reporters after Georgia State’s 84-55 NCAA Tournament loss to Houston that he will probably go pro.
“This is probably my last game in a Georgia State uniform,” Simonds said. “And I just want to say I love the guys, love the team, and the culture I’ve been a part of the for the last three years. It’s been the best three years of my life.”
Hunter spoke next, saying that it was time for Simonds to go and that the guard would “make money for a long time playing basketball.”
