Duke dismisses Rasheed Sulaimon from team

DURHAM, N.C. -- Duke junior guard Rasheed Sulaimon has been dismissed from the Duke basketball program as announced by head coach Mike Krzyzewski on Thursday. Sulaimon remains in good academic standing and is expected to finish the spring semester.

“Rasheed has been unable to consistently live up to the standards required to be a member of our program,” Krzyzewski said. “It is a privilege to represent Duke University and with that privilege comes the responsibility to conduct oneself in a certain manner. After Rasheed repeatedly struggled to meet the necessary obligations, it became apparent that it was time to dismiss him from the program.”

Sulaimon averaged 10.0 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game during 90 contests as a Blue Devil. Sulaimon, a Houston, Texas, native, posted a .391 career 3-point field-goal percentage (115 of 294) and scored in double-figures 49 times. Sulaimon earned ACC All-Freshman Team honors in 2013 after averaging 11.6 points and 3.4 rebounds per game. As a sophomore, he shot a career-best 41.0 percent (43-of-105) from 3-point range but saw his scoring drop to 9.9 points per game due to inconsistent play on both ends of the floor.

Sulaimon averaged 7.5 points. 2.0 rebounds and 1.8 assists per game this season. He was 52 of 126 (.413) from the field and 23 of 57 (.404) from 3-point range.
