Ole Miss leading scorer Dundrecous Nelson has been kicked off the team for violating team rules, just days after being arrested and charged with with possession of drug paraphernalia in his home.
The 5-foot-11 sophomore guard was averaging 11.6 points per game, but had struggled and scored a total of 14 points over the past three games. He had been replaced in the starting lineup by freshman Jarvis Summers.
Nelson was arrested on Tuesday night, shortly after the team's 50-48 victory against SMU. The police report stated that officers smelled marijuana from the home and found eight roaches.
Seldom-used reserve Jamal Jones was also kicked off the team for admitting to smoking marijuana with Nelson.
Andy Kennedy's Rebels are 10-4 and open SEC play at LSU on Saturday.
