Georgetown rules ex-Kentwood star Smith academically ineligible
Former Kentwood High basketball star Joshua Smith is out for the rest of the Georgetown University men's basketball season after the school declared him academically ineligible.
Smith, a 6-foot-10 junior center, averaged 11.5 points per game for Georgetown.
Smith, of Kent, transferred to the Washington D.C., school this season after playing two years at UCLA. Smith left UCLA for personal reasons after playing six games last season.
He helped lead Kentwood to the 2010 Class 4A State Championship during his senior season (2009-10), as the Conquerors went 21-10 and 11-5 (second place) in the South Puget Sound League 4A North Division. He scored a game-high 22 points, grabbing 16 rebounds and handed out five assists in a 67-58 win over Jackson in the state title game.
