North Carolina F Graves dismissed from team
Posted October 7, 2010
Will Graves has been dismissed from the University of North Carolina men’s basketball team for failure to comply with team rules, head coach Roy Williams announced today.
“This is 100 percent not related to any NCAA matters on campus,” said Williams in a statement to the media.
“I hate this for Will. He worked extremely hard this summer to get himself physically in the best shape he’s been in years, but he did not do everything he needed to do to be a part of our basketball program. This is a huge blow to our team, but an even bigger blow for Will. Playing for the Tar Heels meant so much to him.”
The fifth-year senior forward was suspended for a portion of the 2008-2009 season for the same reason.
The sharp-shooter averaged just under ten points a game for the Heels last year when he was the team's third-leading scorer.
