FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. -- University of Arkansas Head Coach Mike Anderson announced the dismissal of senior forward Dustin Thomas.

The Texarkana native has averaged five points, four rebounds for the Hogs in the 2017-2018 season. He scored three points in a loss Saturday against Missouri.

“Senior forward Dustin Thomas has been dismissed from the team effective immediately for a violation of team rules," said Anderson. "It is a privilege to represent the University of Arkansas as a student-athlete. We will continue to hold the student-athletes in our program to a high standard on and off the court.”

Arkansas (21-19) opens Southeastern Conference Tournament play Thursday night. The opponent has yet to be determined.
