Guard dismissed after pot bust

Staff Writer

The KC Rangers men’s basketball team has dismissed a player after he was arrested Thursday, Jan. 31, on drug charges.

Andre Jamal Horne (Newark, Del.), a freshman guard, was arrested for possession of marijuana following a random dorm room check conducted by the assistant director for student life.

Horne played in 16 games and started in three, averaging 9.1 points per game, and shot better than 50 percent from the field, including over 40 percent from the three-point line.

“Team rules were broken,” said Chris Craddock, coordinator of public and sports information. “They followed procedure and he’s no longer a member of the team.”

Rangers coach Brian Hoberecht had no comment on the incident.

Horne was held Friday in Gregg County Jail on a $1,000 bond.
