FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) Arkansas coach Mike Anderson says forward Jacorey Williams will not return to the program following his arrest last month for allegedly using counterfeit money at three locations near campus.

Williams, a three-year letterman who averaged 4.8 points and 2.8 rebounds per game last season, was one of three Razorbacks arrested in connection with a two-month investigation into counterfeit money. All-Southeastern Conference freshman team selection Anton Beard and junior transfer Dustin Thomas were the others and they remain suspended.

Anderson says ''members of our program carry a responsibility to conduct themselves in a manner consistent with the expectations we have established for our student-athletes both on and off the court.''

Arkansas was 27-9 last season and lost in its second game of the NCAA Tournament.
