ASU Basketball Team Lets Guard Keala King Go

In a shocking series of events, the ASU basketball program has dismissed starting guard Keala King from its program, according to Doug Haller. Sendek had this to say about King's departure: "We have decided Keala will no longer be on the team. We wish him nothing but the best in the future."

King served a two-game suspension (alongside fellow starter Kyle Cain and guard Chris Colvin) during the team's recent L.A. road trip for "unacceptable conduct". During that stretch, the Sun Devils went 1-1 with a win over the USC Trojans and a loss against the UCLA Bruins.

Now it appears that King will not return to the team at all. He led the team with 13.7 points per game (though that mark has now been eclipsed by Trent Lockett and his 13.8 points per game). King shot 51.7% from the field and averaged 3.3 assists as well as 4.9 rebounds per game.

An ASU basketball squad that has struggled to put points on the board will now call on other players to step up in the wake of this announcement. As of now, the status of the other two suspended players (Cain and Colvin) remains unaddressed.
