The KC Rangers men’s basketball team has dismissed a player after he was arrested Jan. 31 on charges of possession of marijuana less than two ounces in a drug-free zone.
Andre Jamal Horne (Newark, Del.), a freshman guard, was arrested following a random residence hall 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.”
Head coach Brian Hoberecht had no comment on the incident.
Horne was released from the Gregg County Jail Feb. 2 on a $1,000 bond.
