YPSILANTI, Mich. (AP) -Senior center James Matthews has been dismissed from the Eastern Michigan basketball program because of conduct detrimental to the program.
``This is a tough decision, but one that was made in the best interests of the program and the players,'' coach Charles Ramsey said Tuesday in a statement. ``James is taking his last course this semester and is on track to graduate in April. We wish James the best of luck in his future endeavors.''
The 6-foot-8, 240-pound Matthews missed the first eight games this season before returning for the last 10 games, when he averaged 5.0 points and 3.8 rebounds. During his career, he averaged 3.6 points and 2.7 rebounds.
