MANOA, OAHU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

Less than a week after head coach Gib Arnold was relieved of his coaching duties, the University of Hawaii men's basketball team has lost a star player.

Sources said forward Isaac Fotu has left the team and plans to return to New Zealand to play professionally.

This comes after Benjy Taylor, the team's interim head coach, said at a press conference last week that Fotu was ineligible to play this season due to a pending NCAA investigation.

Fotu was an all-conference forward for UH last season. He ranked second in the Big West in scoring and led the 'Bows in field goal percentage.
