Villanova’s Jahvon Quinerly Apologizes for Social Media Post Critical of Program

SI

Villanova freshman point guard Jahvon Quinerly apologized for a social media post after the team's 78–75 loss to Penn on Tuesday.

Quinerly played one minute in the loss. After the game, Quinerly posted to Instagram stories on the account "jelllyjq", writing, "Was my 2nd choice for a reason."

Head coach Jay Wright said he had a conversation with Quinerly and he apologized.

"We look at it as a good teaching moment,” Wright said, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer. "He was emotional about playing time and then he took [the post] down immediately, apologized. Today, we talked about it, and he feels really bad about it. It’s a learning experience. We all know he’s a good kid, so it’s not an issue that concerns us. We accept his apology."
