UPDATE: 5:45 p.m. – Senior center Tatiyana Smith has quit basketball for an undisclosed medical reason, Razorbacks coach Jimmy Dykes told the media during a press conference Tuesday.
Smith and Danberry were two of the six who knelt for the national anthem Nov. 3.
Jeri Thorpe, the assistant communications director for women’s basketball, confirmed Danberry’s departure Tuesday, saying the former five-star recruit did not give a reason for her departure.
Danberry was one of six Lady Razorbacks to kneel during the national anthem Nov. 3. The protest sparked outrage by members of the Arkansas state legislature, even though UA officials voiced support for the members’ actions.
During subsequent games, Danberry and the rest of the team decided to stand for the anthem.
She was averaging 4.7 points per game and 3.8 rebounds per game during the Razorbacks’ undefeated run to start the 2016 season.
