(AP) - Freshman Justin Coleman has been dismissed from Marshall's basketball team, three weeks after he had been reinstated from an earlier suspension.
Marshall coach Tom Herrion said Thursday that Coleman was dismissed for conduct detrimental to the program and not upholding its standards and expectations. He didn't provide specifics.
A native of Richmond, Va., Coleman averaged 5.5 points and 2.5 rebounds per game in 17 games this season.
The guard had been suspended following Marshall's loss at Belmont on Dec. 29 and was reinstated to the team a week later.
Marshall (13-7, 4-2 Conference USA) has lost three straight games and plays at Memphis (14-6, 5-1) on Saturday.
