Union Tarbes-Lourdes’ top scorer with 16 points per game will not return for the restart of the championship after slamming the door after a huge tantrum before exiting the group victorious in Berck.
After the U’boys’ defeat at Lorient (90-79) and especially the huge furor after they took off, we knew by the end of the year that American Devante Wallace was no longer in the good books of the unionist group. Lorient’s coach took to the field after a mistake that allowed Union to cancel the first-leg lead on goal average.
“He has been temporarily excluded from the group,” said Stéphane Dao, coach of Union Tarbes Lourdes, before leaving for Berck.
The US winger did not participate in the final training session on Thursday before traveling to Berck, where Union played without his services on Friday evening and achieved its second success in the external and final part of the season (78-55). .
According to a source close to the Bigourdan club, the temporary transfer has become permanent as the departures of Devante Wallace and Union Tarbes-Lourdes split at the beginning of the year. The actor even returned to the United States.
The Union will now be without the services of its top scorer (16 points per game), who has appeared several times in the big 5 N1 of FFBB, starting from Friday, January 12, for the resumption of the championship with the reception of Chalans.
