Loyola releases Colin Beatty

Loyola has released Barton County (Kan.) Community College guard Colin Beatty from his national letter of intent, the school announced on Wednesday.

Beatty, a 6-foot-4 guard, had signed with the Ramblers when Jim Whitesell was still their coach. Whitesell was fired in March and replaced by Porter Moser earlier this month.

Beatty averaged 13.2 points, 5.6 rebounds and 3.5 assists this past season.
