Over the weekend, the Purdue basketball program announced redshirt junior forward Basil Smotherman is no longer a member of the Boilermakers roster.
According to a release, Purdue coach Matt Painter says the decision for Smotherman to leave the program was mutual.
“There are standards and expectations that our student-athletes must follow and Basil has not met these guidelines. We have mutually agreed the best route for him is to no longer be a member of our squad,” Painter said in a statement.
Smotherman appeared in 18 games this season, averaging 3.9 points, 1.7 rebounds and 0.8 assists.
Purdue (17-4) returns to action later this afternoon with a trip to Lincoln to take on the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Tip-off at Pinnacle Bank Arena is set for 4:30 p.m. ET on the Big Ten Network.
