Old Dominion senior guard Kent Bazemore was arrested on Wednesday night shortly before his team was set to take on Mercer. His team lost in the quarterfinals of the CIT.

The Old Dominion Monarchs lost in the CIT quarterfinals on Wednesday night in a 79-73 decision to the Mercer Bears. But the loss of Kent Bazemore before the game was the huge blow of the night. Bazemore was arrested by Virginia Beach police shortly before the Monarchs were ready to take the court at the Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk, VA, according to WAVY TV (via CBS Sports)

The arrest was in connection to Bazemore's DUI conviction last summer. Part of his sentencing included attending Alcohol Safety Action Program (ASAP) classes. He failed to show up to his required classes, prompting an arrest warrant to be issued.

Bazemore, a senior, averaged 15.4 points and 5.9 rebounds this season. Both were career highs for the 6-foot-5 guard, who will now look to make the move to the NBA.
