Wendell Lewis is no longer on the Mississippi State men's basketball team a team spokesperson confirmed Thursday afternoon.
Lewis was dismissed from the squad after a violation of team rules.
“I am saddened by the actions we had to take because we brought Wendell back to give him an opportunity to complete his senior year on the court healthy and earn his degree,” MSU second-year head coach Rick Ray said.
Lewis is the second player the Bulldogs have lost in the last two weeks. Guard Jalen Steele decided not to play his senior year, although he will remain on scholarship and try to graduate from MSU. Lewis will also remain on scholarship.
