Jason Carter tossed off Ole Miss basketball team

Mississippi forward Jason Carter has been dismissed from the

basketball team for an unspecified violation of team rules.

The 6-foot-8 transfer from Chipola (Fla.) Junior College was

supposed to add depth in the frontcourt. But he was suspended

before the first exhibition game of the season by coach Andy

Kennedy and never played in a game.

Kennedy announced Carter’s dismissal Friday through a university

statement.

Carter played in 16 games for Alabama during the 2010-11 season,

averaging 1.4 points and 1.8 rebounds before transferring to

Chipola.

Ole Miss (6-0) plays its first road game of the season against

Middle Tennessee (6-2) on Saturday.
