For the first time in about a month-and-a-half, Brent Arrington got a good night's sleep. Since late May, Arrington has patiently waited for Mississippi Valley State to release him from his scholarship. His request was repeatedly denied, making what should have been a relaxing summer break an exceedingly stressful time for the Lansdowne grad. But last Friday, after his father spoke with someone from the NCAA and pleaded Arrington's case, the 6-foot-2, 182-pound guard was released from his scholarship.
