Jarrod was named team co-captain, but his season was cut short in 1999 by “undisclosed medical issues.” Generally speaking, Jarrod lost his nerve to play basketball. With a 1999 loss to DePaul, the Milwaukee Journal had this to say about Lovette:
But on the bench, he grew pale, his lips chattered, and he hunched over, clutching a towel and breathing very hard. He looked as if he had the flu or a severe case of nerves.
After a 22-day, five-game absence for undisclosed medical reasons, Lovette, a senior, returned to practice Thursday. But this was clearly not the smooth comeback all had hoped for.
After halftime, Lovette remained in the locker room with a doctor, and MU officials would not let reporters ask him any questions after the game.
“I don't know what his status will be, but I thoroughly suspect that basketball is not going to be in his future – or for the remainder of this season,” said Deane, whose team dropped to 0-4 in Conference USA. “I could be speaking ahead of myself, but I just don't see Jarrod's return becoming easy.
” . . . He has medical problems. He will not be available for comment and he's not going to make any comments about it. It's a very difficult situation for both our basketball program and for him. ”
