Missouri basketball coach Kim Anderson has dismissed sophomore forward Torren Jones from the team for an unspecified violation of team rules.
“We have high standards at the University of Missouri and after consulting with Mike Alden, I have made the decision to dismiss Torren Jones from our program,” Anderson said in a statement released today by Mizzou Athletics.
“I am disappointed in Torren’s actions and want to be very clear about the culture of accountability we are building within our program. It’s a privilege to wear the University of Missouri uniform and we will represent our University and our state with great integrity.”
Jones, a 6-foot 8-inch forward from Chandler, Arizona, averaged 2.1 points per game last season while playing 8 minutes per game.
