Lyles Dismissed

West Virginia University men's basketball coach John Beilein announced Wednesday that junior guard Tim Lyles has been dismissed from the team for the failure to comply with team rules.

In announcing his decision, Belein said there would be no further comment on the dismissal.

Lyles, a native of Baltimore, Md., was sidelined for the 2001-02 season with a knee injury. He averaged 11.5 points as a sophomore and 7.8 points as a freshman.

The style of the announcement is consistent with Beilein's straightforward approach to the rebuilding of the WVU basketball program.
