A third member of the Razorback women’s basketball team has quit the program, according to a press release sent Wednesday.

Sophomore guard Briunna Freeman joined former teammates Jordan Danberry and Tatiyana Smith with leaving the team. All three were among the six players who knelt during the national anthem before an exhibition game Nov. 3.

No reason was given for Freeman’s departure.

“Briunna is a valuable member of our team, a tremendous student and person,” Dykes said in the release. “We will honor her scholarship through the completion of the academic year and wish her the very best in her studies at Arkansas and in all of her endeavors after college. We thank her for representing our basketball program the last two seasons.”

A three-star recruit coming out of high school, the Pelham, Georgia native has only played in five games for the Hogs after an injury has sidelined her for a majority of the season. Freeman averaged 8.2 points per game and 2.6 rebounds per game

She played in 29 games during her freshman season and averaged 1.6 points per game and 2.1 rebounds per game in limited action.
