Runs, Toupane Will Not Return To Basketball Program

Matthias Runs and Jean Yves Toupane will not return to the St. Bonaventure basketball program next season, head coach Mark Schmidt announced. Both players intend to seek transfers to other institutions, he said.

"Matthias and Jean-Yves have been solid students and members of our basketball program. We wish them well," Schmidt said.

Runs, a 7-foot sophomore center from Hilversum, Netherlands, played in two games this season and did not score.  Runs was not eligible for the 2012-13 season because of a delayed enrollment ruling by the NCAA.  Toupane, a 6-foot-7 forward from Dakar, Senegal, played in six games this season and scored four points. He played in seven games his freshman season.
