AMES, Iowa (AP) -Suspended Iowa State guard Mike Taylor, the Cyclones' leading scorer last season, has been dismissed from the team after a series of arrests.
Coach Greg McDermott said in a statement Thursday that he talked to Taylor and ``clearly defined the expectations that he needed to meet in order to remain a member of this basketball team. Unfortunately, Mike fell short of the goals that were set for him.''
Taylor was suspended in March after being arrested and charged with vandalizing an on-campus apartment building. In April, Taylor was cited for allegedly shoplifting a bottle of cold medicine from an Ames convenience store. He pleaded guilty to a charge of fifth-degree theft.
Taylor spent one season at Iowa State after transferring from Chipola College (Fla.). He earned honorable mention All-Big 12 honors, averaging 16.0 points and 4.5 assists.
