RENO, Nev. (AP) -Nevada freshman Ahyaro Phillips has been dismissed from the basketball team after his second arrest in a year, this time for having a dangerous weapon on school property.
The 6-foot-8 forward averaged 2.1 points and 2.7 rebounds this year.
The school's athletic department issued a statement Friday that said Phillips was arrested by campus police after an incident Wednesday involving an unspecified weapon.
The university did not provide additional details on the incident or the weapon.
If convicted, Phillips faces up to a year in jail and a $2,000 fine.
Phillips was suspended for about a month at the start of the season after he and two other Wolf Pack players were charged with shoplifting at a sporting goods store in October.
