Costain dismissed from Waves for violating school policy

MALIBU, Calif. -- Kingsley Costain, Pepperdine's top
returning scorer, has been dismissed from school for a violation of
university policy.

"It's unfortunate to lose a player of Kingsley's caliber so
close to the start of the season," coach Vance Walberg said in a
statement issued Friday. "We are going to miss him and we wish him
the best.

"We've been practicing hard and getting ready for the new
season and we will have to find a way to overcome this big loss."

Costain, a 5-foot-7 guard from Toronto, averaged 11.5 points as
a junior last season. He finishes his career with 146 3-pointers to
rank fifth on the school's career list.
