Missouri junior guard Wes Clark has been dismissed from the program for academic reasons, the school announced on Tuesday.
“Wes Clark has failed to meet the academic expectations of Mizzou Athletics Department and is no longer a member of the men’s basketball program,” the school announced in a statement. “Due to this issue relating to academics, Mizzou Athletics will have no further comment.”
The 6’,0”, 180-pound guard from Detroit, had started all 25 games this season and ranks second in scoring with 9.8 points per game. Clark’s 30 three-pointers are the most by any Missouri player this season.
Clark took to Twitter on Tuesday to post a note on the news.
