Mizzou’s Frank Haith Kicks Player Off Team

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) — Missouri basketball coach Frank Haith has kicked forward Zach Price off the team, ending his career with the Tigers before it began.

Price, a transfer from Louisville who wasn’t eligible to play until next season, was arrested twice last week on four counts of suspicion of assault. Another Missouri player, Earnest Ross, filed a petition in Boone County Circuit Court on April 2 that sought a protection order against Price.

Haith said in a statement on Thursday that the situation with Price was “unacceptable.” Haith had suspended Price indefinitely after his arrest.

Haith also took responsibility for other off-court incidents involving the program in recent months and said that sort of behavior will not be tolerated.
