Marquette red-shirt freshman Matt Mortensen (Provo, Utah/Timpview) will not have his scholarship renewed and has subsequently been dismissed from the men's basketball program, Director of Athletics Bill Cords announced today.
Mortensen has rendered himself ineligible by NCAA rules.
"We hold student-athletes in our programs to high standards as individuals, team members and representatives of the university. Matt's actions were unacceptable. This is only the second time in my 19 years I've taken such an action. However, given the circumstances, I and the university had no choice," said Cords.
This situation is not related to academics.
