Tevin Mack has been suspended indefinitely from the program due to a violation of team rules, the program announced on Thursday afternoon.

“We have a set of standards that we expect people in our program to adhere to,” head coach Shaka Smart said in a statement. “Tevin has failed to reach them.”

Mack, a 6-foot-6 sophomore that initially committed to Smart when he was still at VCU, is the leading scorer for the Longhorns this season, averaging 14.8 points. He scored 27 points in the Longhorns’ lone Big 12 win.

Texas is 7-9 on the season and just 1-3 in league play.
