MINNEAPOLIS (AP) Minnesota has dismissed swingman Carlos Morris for conduct detrimental to the team.
The Golden Gophers announced the move Wednesday, a day before they host No. 6 Maryland. The school says the senior will remain on scholarship for the remainder of the season.
Morris was the team’s fourth-leading scorer at 9.8 points a game. He made 16 starts and averaged 25.6 minutes for the Gophers, who are still looking for their first Big Ten victory of the season.
Morris was a junior college transfer before last season and was one of just two seniors on the rebuilding team, along with Joey King.
He was recently replaced in the starting lineup by freshman Dupree McBrayer.
