Cerasoli Out

This does not surprise me at all. When asked in the off season about Cerasoli, I could tell that Kennedy was not a big fan of him from the get go. This was another signee of Rod's that he built up to be a savior that did not pan out. He was probably more connected to former assistant Tracy Dildy. To be honest I was surprised he lasted this long.

OXFORD, Miss. – Ole Miss head coach Andy Kennedy announced Friday that Justin Cerasoli is no longer a member of the Rebel basketball team.

“Justin has left the team for personal reasons,” said Kennedy. “We wish him well in all his future endeavors.”

A sophomore guard, Cerasoli saw action in seven games for the Rebels this season. The Chicago native averaged 3.4 points and 1.1 rebounds in 13.1 minutes per game.

Cerasoli signed with Ole Miss in July 2005 and sat out last year after transferring from Seton Hall.
