Iowa State dismisses Palo
Palo originally was suspended last year after being charged with second-degree sexual assault. That charge was dropped in January of this year and the university's Office of Judicial Affairs cleared him to play, allowing him to return to the team.
But that decision was appealed, the university said in a statement released Saturday, and Palo then was found to have violated ISU's Student Code of Conduct, resulting in his dismissal.
Palo, a senior from Ames and a reserve guard, played in 17 games last season, averaging 2.8 points. 1.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists.
