NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Vanderbilt coach Kevin Stallings has dismissed guard Eric McClellan from the team based on new information.

University officials announced Wednesday that McClellan was suspended for the spring semester for violating academic policy with the sophomore point guard apologizing and promising to return this summer.

But Stallings announced Friday that he has dismissed his leading scorer based upon information learned Wednesday night.

McClellan had been averaging a team-high 14.3 points for Vanderbilt, and the guard who transferred to Vanderbilt from Tulsa started the first 12 games for Vanderbilt (8-5, 0-1 Southeastern Conference).

The suspension had left Stallings with only seven scholarship players, but his leading scorer from last season, Kedren Johnson, is expected back this summer.
