You have to be do something pretty low to get thrown off a team by Larry Eustachy. The well traveled Darnell Dodson managed to do just that. And now Dodson will be trying to land on his fourth college team in three years.

Dodson was kicked off the Southern Mississippi basketball team for alledgedly stealing from a frat house. Dodson was arrested along with Cory Markell Smith, a former member of the Southern Miss and William Carey basketball teams.

USM police chief Bob Hopkins gave this statement.

“Members returned to the residence and saw two black males in the residence before they fled out the back door,” Hopkins said. “They gave us basic descriptions.

“We stopped and talked to one individual, who was later identified as Dodson. There was a preliminary investigation done at that time. He was released to be back in our office the next morning. He came back and the investigators interviewed him and through that interview and the available evidence, we were able to make an arrest.”

Smith was identified as the other suspect through statements made by Dodson in a police interview. Way to pick a partner in crime. And what a way for a college career to likely come to an end. Dodson won't see the light of day at a D-1 school and the only reason he will get another chance at any school is because he has a bundle of talent. If you can't hack it for Eustachy or John Calipari, you are doomed to fail.
