Auburn dismisses guard Shaq Johnson

Auburn, AL (Sports Network) - Auburn has dismissed sophomore guard Shaq Johnson from the men's basketball team for a violation of team rules.

Johnson played in all 32 games in 2012-13, including 21 starts. He averaged 6.2 points in SEC play.

"We hold our student-athletes to a high standard at Auburn University in the way that they conduct themselves off the court," head coach Tony Barbee said. "I am very disappointed in Shaq's choices and actions, and they won't be tolerated. This decision is not one that I take lightly, but it is in the best interest of both the program and the student-athlete."

The Tigers went 9-23 last season.
