Morgan no longer part of UNLV's program

LAS VEGAS (AP) UNLV forward Dwayne Morgan will continue to receive financial support from the university as he works toward graduation in December, but will not be a member of the Runnin' Rebels basketball team.

Coach Marvin Menzies said in a statement Tuesday that Morgan did everything asked of him after being suspended by the team for an arrest for disorderly conduct in May. Morgan was arrested after a dispute with a cab driver.

The 6-foot-8 Morgan was a highly touted prospect out of Baltimore in 2014 and played 33 games as a freshman, averaging 5.3 points and 3.0 rebounds. He averaged 5.5 points and 4.7 rebounds in 27 games as a sophomore, but was limited to 10 games last season due to a shoulder injury.
