No further information was provided, but the impact was definite: the time for two of the Mountaineers' top men's basketball players at WVU has come to an end. Ahmad was averaging roughly 12 points and 6 rebounds a game, while Harris was averaging roughly 8 points and 4.5 rebounds a contest.

Head coach Bob Huggins has already had to deal with injuries to Beetle Bolden and Sagaba Konate, so this will only pour more salt into the wound. They average 28 and 25 minutes per game, respectively. He already served a half-season NCAA suspension a year ago, a penalty consistent with testing positive for a street drug at an NCAA championship event.

West Virginia forwards Esa Ahmad and Wesley Harris, two starters for the Mountaineers, have been dismissed from the basketball team for a violation of athletic department policies, the program announced Monday evening. The two players are among the team's leaders in several statistical categories.

Harris still faces a battery charge stemming from a Morgantown traffic altercation last July in which he reportedly broke the nose of another motorist.

Harris also received a public reprimand from the Big 12 last season, after taking a swing at a Texas Tech student who rushed the court in Lubbock.

Ahmad and Harris have both been starters for West Virginia's team this season.

He started all 37 games for West Virginia last season as a third-year sophomore, averaging 5.3 points and 3.6 rebounds.
