Basketball: That's the way the cookie crumbles; Christie off team at Mac

The Ryan Christie soap opera is over, for now, at McMaster:
"In his first game as a Marauder last October, Christie scored 19 points and added eight rebounds.

" 'There's no question he's a talented athlete,' Raso added. "But we just couldn't get him to do all the things we wanted him to do.

" 'He's still enrolled at McMaster. I expect him to finish off this term and work towards his degree. But basketball-wise, it's open for him to do whatever he wants.'

"Marauders won all three games when Christie didn't dress from Nov. 14-21.

" 'I'm not too upset or concerned about it,' said Christie of his departure. "Whether it's fair or not is not for me to decide.' "
Speaking as a neutral observer, it is a shame it has not worked out (important to use present tense) for the Marauders and one of the best of the deep freshman class across the country.
