 URBANA, Ill. (AP) -Junior guard Jamar Smith was dismissed from the Illinois men's basketball team on Thursday, two days after a prosecutor asked a judge to revoke his probation for allegedly drinking alcohol.
Coach Bruce Weber said Smith's decision to violate terms of a personal agreement for his return to the team left him without a choice.
Smith is serving two years' probation after pleading guilty to felony driving under the influence. He wrecked his car in February 2007, injuring former teammate Brian Carlwell.
Champaign police breaking up an argument outside a bar Friday said the 21-year-old Smith smelled of alcohol.
A judge set a hearing for Sept. 17, to consider whether Smith should have his probation revoked.
