Missouri dismisses guard Wes Clark

COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Missouri announced Tuesday that junior guard Wes Clark has been dismissed from the men's basketball team.

"Wes Clark has failed to meet the academic expectations of the Mizzou Athletics Department and is no longer a member of the men's basketball program," the team said in a release. "Due to this issue relating to academics, Mizzou Athletics will have no further comment."

Clark started all 25 games this season for Missouri, averaging 9.8 points per game and three rebounds. He has four 20-point games this season, including a career-high 26 points in an 81-72 loss at South Carolina Jan. 16.

Clark missed the final eight games of the 2014-15 season with a dislocated elbow. He was also suspended one game last season for a violation of team policy.

Clark, Missouri's second-leading scorer, has one year of NCAA eligibility remaining.
