Cincinnati's Murray kicked off team for rules violation
CINCINNATI -- Junior forward Erick Murray was kicked off the Cincinnati basketball team for violating an unspecified rule, the second player the Bearcats have lost in four days.
Murray, a walk-on, was dismissed after an 84-63 victory Monday night over Arkansas-Monticello. Freshman DeAndre Coleman left the team Friday, citing lack of playing time.
The Bearcats have nine players on scholarship -- four below the NCAA limit -- while interim coach Andy Kennedy guides them through their first season since Bob Huggins was ousted as coach.
