Beatty’s return to squad uncertain

Freshman Miles Beatty missed his fourth straight game after being suspended for breaking an unspecified team rule earlier this month.

Coach Karl Hobbs said Beatty has not been practicing and it is indefinite when he will return to the team. Beatty also said that he has not been told if or when he will be allowed to start playing again. Hobbs would not comment on what rule Beatty broke that has him sidelined.

Rumors have started to circulate that the guard might transfer at the end of the season. Beatty said he is not sure whether he will look for other places to play, but that he has not put his name out to other schools yet and thus has not been contacted by other coaches.

The Guttenberg, N.J., native added that he is very happy at GW but is not happy with how the season has played out. He said he is close with his teammates and would like to stay in Foggy Bottom.

“Everything is up in the air right now,” Beatty said. “I’m trying my best to have it work out here.”
