Providence kicks Peterson off team

PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Jamine "Greedy" Peterson has been dismissed from the Providence Friars men's basketball team for violating team rules.

Coach Keno Davis announced the dismissal on Tuesday, saying Peterson had broken unspecified team rules.

Peterson was the Friars' leading scorer last season, averaging nearly 20 points a game and more than 10 rebounds.

His dismissal follows the arrests last month of teammates James Still and Johnnie Lacy. They were charged with assault and were suspended pending the investigation. Lacy already was planning to transfer.
