INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Evansville coach Marty Simmons says backup swingman Jordan Jahr has been kicked off the basketball team.
The move comes three days after Simmons suspended Jahr for a violation of team rules. Neither Simmons nor the school have said what rule or rules Jahr violated.
Simmons issued a statement Friday saying that Jahr will no longer be on the team, though he will complete his spring semester at Evansville. He also thanked Jahr for his contributions to the program.
Jahr started five of the 20 games this season and was averaging 3.7 points and 2.5 rebounds. The 6-foot-6 native of Texas played in eight games last season before an injury forced him to redshirt.
Evansville (13-9, 6-4 Missouri Valley Conference) plays at Missouri State on Saturday.
