 MILWAUKEE (AP) -Senior forward Torre Johnson, Wisconsin-Milwaukee's leading scorer and rebounder, was dismissed from the team Tuesday after being arrested early Saturday morning.
Milwaukee coach Rob Jeter also said that sophomore guard Roman Gentry left the team for personal reasons.
Johnson, a transfer from Oklahoma State, had been suspended in the immediate aftermath of his arrest on suspicion of battery. The 22-year-old Johnson allegedly hit a woman in the mouth and she needed 10 stitches, police said.
``I have had the chance to speak to Torre and express to him my extreme disappointment in his behavior,'' Jeter said in a statement. ``The conversation also gave me the chance to tell him this was not something we could accept and that he would no longer be a part of our basketball team.''
Johnson started all 10 games for the Panthers (3-7) and was averaging 17.8 points and 8.0 rebounds.
Jeter said Gentry wanted to return closer to home in Iowa.
Gentry, averaging 5.1 points per game, started the first four games this season, but played in limited minutes off the bench recently.
Just before the season began, Jeter tossed leading scorer Avery Smith off the team for an unspecified violation of team rules. Smith had been named to the Horizon League's preseason all-conference team.
The Panthers host Central Michigan on Wednesday night.
Johnson, charged Monday with substantial battery, was released on $1,000 signature bond and has a preliminary hearing scheduled Dec. 27 in Milwaukee County Circuit Court.
