Junior forward Brandon Morris has been dismissed from the University of Georgia basketball team today, following a Sunday morning arrest on felony charges of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute. Ouch. Mark Fox announced the dismissal today:
"This program has a strong expectation of citizenship and every one of our players understands this. This expectation does not mean that mistakes will not happen. Whey they do I always deal with them appropriately. Brandon had a very clear understanding of our expectation. Unfortunately, I've had to dismiss him from our team. We've offered Brandon as much help as we can as he leaves, in hope that he can continue his career somewhere else."
According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Morris' three-game suspension at the beginning of last basketball season was "also for a violation of UGA's marijuana-use policies."
