CORVALLIS, Ore. (AP) -Center C.J. Giles was dismissed from the Oregon State team on Monday, interim coach Kevin Mouton's first day on the job.
No reason was given for the decision, but Giles was benched for the Jan. 3 game against Arizona because he was late more than once for practice.
The 6-foot-11 Giles played in 10 games for Oregon State (6-12, 0-6 Pac-10), averaging 6.3 points and 5.6 rebounds. Giles began his collegiate career at Kansas, but was dismissed from that team before the 2006-07 season for what coach Bill Self called ``a pattern of irresponsible behavior and disrespect for team rules.''
Giles did not play for Oregon State until Dec. 8 because of NCAA transfer rules. He started six of his 10 games.
Mouton took over the Beavers late Sunday after the firing of coach Jay John. John tried to recruit Giles when he was in high school and hoped he could get his career back on track in Corvallis.
