|Illinois State Kicks Guard Allen off Team
|NORMAL, Ill. (AP)--Illinois State basketball coach Dan Muller has kicked senior guard Bryant Allen off the basketball team for an unspecified team-rules violation.
Muller said in a news release Monday that Allen may be able to stay in school and finish his degree but won't be part of the team.
Allen started 30 of the Redbirds' 32 games last season. The Maplewood, Mo. native averaged 8.6 points and 1.8 rebounds a game.
Allen is the fourth ISU player who has either been removed from the team or left since late last year.
Guard Geoffrey Allen was kicked off the team last season while another guard, Tyler Brown, was suspended for unspecified conduct problems but later returned to finish his senior season.
The Redbirds also lost forward Jon Ekey. He transferred to Illinois.
