College career looks to be done for UNC Asheville's Atkinson

Jeremy Atkinson's college basketball career appears to be over as his UNC Asheville Bulldogs were spilled 87-72 by lowly Longwood (as in 8-24 lowly) in the first round of the Big South Conference tournament Tuesday.

UNC Asheville, once 15-10 and on top in the Big South, lost six of its last seven to finish 16-16. Not sure if the Bulldogs will get a chance to play again in CollegeInsider.com or College Basketball Invitational postseason tournaments but their opportunity for a third straight NCAA appearance is null and void.

Atkinson, Fike High School's all-time career scoring leader with 2,001 points, led the Bulldogs with 19 points and 11 rebounds in what looks like his final college game. He did, however, get named to the All-Big South first team earlier in the week.

I hope to get a chance to chat with Jeremy tomorrow to talk about his two seasons with the Bulldogs after transferring from Louisburg as a JUCO All-American and his plans for the future.
