I spoke with Brandon McGee earlier. Apparently, he was dismissed earlier today. He’s still surprised by what happened and said he needs to take some time to think about the situation.
News breaking now. More to come.
Here’s the press release from Indiana.
Indiana Men’s Basketball Coach Tom Crean announced today that freshman Brandon McGee (Chicago/Crane HS) has been dismissed from the program for academic and team guideline negligence.
“Our coaching and support staff tried to make this work out, but we felt that there were some basic standard operating procedures that were not being met,” said Crean. “I feel badly for his family and Coach (Anthony) Longstreet (Crane Head Coach) who were helping us to try and make this work, but in the end it just was not possible to continue in the current direction.”
He played in just 17 games and averaged 1.5 points and 1.0 rebounds.
