STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) -Oklahoma State coach Travis Ford has dismissed starting forward Ibrahima Thomas from the basketball team.
Ford says he had several conversations with the sophomore over the past week and determined that he lacked the commitment to make the program successful.
At 6-foot-11, Thomas was the main post presence on a Cowboys team that lacks depth inside. He was benched for Oklahoma State's 83-65 loss at Washington last week and replaced in the starting lineup by senior Anthony Brown.
Thomas had been averaging 8.3 points and 3.9 rebounds while starting the first seven games for Oklahoma State (5-3).
