Glen Rice Jr. dismissed from men’s basketball team

After a series of disciplinary issues and multiple suspensions, Glen Rice Jr. has been dismissed from the men’s basketball team. Rice will remain a student at Tech and finish his academic requirements for the spring semester.

“It’s an honor and a privilege to represent Georgia Tech and be a part of this basketball program,” said Head Coach Brian Gregory. ”There are certain standards that have to be met both on and off the court, and there has to be accountability when those standards aren’t met. I’m disappointed that we have to take this action.”

Rice began the season serving a three-game suspension before averaging 13 points and 6.7 rebounds per game. He was then suspended for the last six games of the 2011-12 season. In his three seasons, Rice averaged 9.9 points and 4.8 rebounds.
