UMKC dismisses senior guard Harrison for rules violations

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Missouri-Kansas City has dismissed senior guard Martez Harrison, the Roos' second-leading scorer, after an investigation into his behavior by the school's Title IX office.

Roos coach Kareem Richardson did not say in a statement Monday what prompted the investigation, but he did say ''Martez failed to meet the expectations we have for student-athletes in our program.''

Harrison had been suspended since late-November.

The 5-foot-11 guard from Kansas City averaged 16.5 points through the Roos' first six games, and was already among the program's career scoring leaders. He finishes his UMKC career with 1,654 points.
