TIFTON, GA (WALB) - Reaction continues to come in to this week's shocking announcement that basketball will no longer be an intercollegiate sport at ABAC.  

WALB News 10 Sports Director Robert Hydrick broke the news Monday. School officials made the public announcement Tuesday. They say limited resources and rising costs led them to disband the men's and women's basketball teams.

Lanessa Davis played for ABAC. She says she was hurt when she got the news.

"A lot of girls are thinking about transferring to other schools and the chemistry that we built is just going to be gone because they're going to be gone. We got really close to the men's basketball team too so a lot of friends we made won't be here and it's real hurtful," said Davis.

It may be too late for many of the players to catch on at other colleges. ABAC says it will honor their scholarships.
