Jeremy Hunt, who received his undergraduate degree from the University of Memphis this month, has been reinstated as a member of the Tiger basketball team and will be eligible to play during the 2006-07 season.
After careful review by the University administration, including the fact(s) that he has completed his degree and that he has shown maturity in meeting all behavioral, social and academic requirements, Hunt's request to play out his final year of eligibility at the U of M has been granted.
A native of Memphis, Hunt lettered for three years at guard for the Tigers while starting 26 of 66 games played. He sat out the 2005-06 season serving a one-year suspension for violation of team policy. A 6-4 graduate of Craigmont High School, Hunt has scored 625 points in his career, averaging 9.5 points per game. He tallied a career-high 24 points in a Memphis victory over Northeastern in March of 2005 and grabbed a career-best 12 rebounds in a contest with Villanova in 2004.
