Arizona State dismissed leading scorer Keala King from the program on Sunday.

"We have decided that Keala will no longer be with the team," said Arizona State coach Herb Sendek. "We wish him nothing but the best in the future."

King was suspended along with two teammates last week and did not play in Thursday's win over USC or Saturday's loss to UCLA. A source told that the dismissal is the culmination of various off-the-court issues. King, a sophomore, was averaging 13.7 points per game. Arizona State is 5-10. The Sun Devils host Oregon on Thursday.
