UCLA BASKETBALL'S ANTHONY STOVER DISMISSED FROM TEAM

LOS ANGELES – UCLA redshirt junior center Anthony Stover has been dismissed from the men's basketball team for failure to meet NCAA eligibility requirements, effective immediately.

"We are very disappointed that Anthony has not met his academic requirements," said UCLA men's basketball head coach Ben Howland. "We had high expectations for him, and we were looking forward to getting increased contributions from him during this coming season."

Stover appeared in 28 games (three starts) for UCLA during the 2011-12 season, averaging 0.5 points and 1.5 rebounds per game. In addition, his 39 blocked shots led the team.

Howland and the Bruins open the 2012-13 campaign, their first in New Pauley Pavilion, on Friday, Nov. 9 against Indiana State.
