Men’s Basketball: Police records show C.J. Turman in alleged abusive relationship

January 11, 2016

Former Men’s Basketball forward C.J. Turman was dismissed from the team preceding the team’s Dec. 29 game at Hofstra under unknown circumstances, leaving fans to question the reason behind the move. “C.J. has not lived up to the standards required to be a member of our basketball family,” Curry said in a statement preceding the game. “We have worked extremely hard to establish a culture within our program that will lead to a lifetime of success for our student-athletes. C.J. has not met the necessary obligations, which led to this decision. We love C.J. and wish only success for him in the future.” According to fauowlaccess.com, a domestic abuse allegation by a former girlfriend filed on Oct. 2 of last year may have played into the dismissal of the team’s scoring and rebounding leader.
