After collapsing late in a three-point loss Saturday night to No. 3 Ohio State, Notre Dame sustained an even more serious blow on Sunday. Senior guard Jerian Grant announced in a statement that he is no longer enrolled at the school due to an academic matter and will not play the rest of the 2013-14 season.

“It is with regret and sorrow that I inform you that I am no longer enrolled at the University of Notre Dame due to an academic matter that I did not handle properly. As a result, I am no longer part of the basketball program and will not be on the court competing with my teammates for the remainder of the 2013-14 season. 

“I take full responsibility for my lack of good judgment and the poor decision that I made. I have no one to blame but myself for the situation. I know and understand the expectations that go with being a student at Notre Dame and I did not live up to those standards.”
