Arkansas senior forward Dustin Thomas dismissed from team days before SEC tourney

Arkansas forward Dustin Thomas has been dismissed from the team

Arkansas basketball coach Mike Anderson announced Monday afternoon that senior forward Dustin Thomas had been dismissed from the team.

Anderson said in a statement that Thomas had been dismissed over a violation of team rules. He did not elaborate.

“It is a privilege to represent the University of Arkansas as a student-athlete," the statement says. "We will continue to hold the student-athletes in our program to a high standard on and off the court.”

The dismissal comes days before the Razorbacks' first game in the SEC tournament. The team, seeded No. 6 in the tournament, is set to play Thursday against the winner of Ole Miss and South Carolina.

Thomas averaged 5 points per game and 4.1 rebounds per game this season.
