MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) -First-year Ball State coach Billy Taylor dismissed center Micah Rollin and guard Jarelle Redden from the team Thursday for separate violations of team policy.
Details of the violations were not disclosed.
``We are disappointed in the actions of Jarelle and Micah,'' Taylor said of the seniors in a news release through the university's sports information office. ``It's unfortunate we had to come to this decision, but we wish them both well in their future endeavors.''
Four other scholarship players have left the team since Taylor succeeded Ronny Thompson as coach in August.
Freshmen C.J. Clark and Robert Martina decided to transfer in August, and last month Taylor dismissed returning player Jalon Perryman and junior college transfer Kevin Ford.
``It's only a disruption if you allow it to be a disruption,'' Taylor, who moved to Ball State from Lehigh, told The Star Press. ``We have to continue to work. We're not going to allow this to be a distraction or use it as an excuse. The guys who are here are going to keep working hard to get better.''
The 6-foot-10 Rollin, a junior college transfer a year ago, started 28 of 30 games and averaged 6.7 points and 4.7 rebounds last season. The 6-2 Redden, who also transferred from a junior college last year, started 11 of 24 games and averaged 1.6 points and 1.8 rebounds.
