The most successful program in junior college men’s basketball will not finish out the season. A press release from Southeastern Community College in West Burlington says 10 players were dismissed from the basketball team for “violations” of the college athletic department policy concerning student conduct. All 10 have lost their scholarships.
Head coach Terry Carroll said ins a statement “he is very disappointed” with the players, who he says they are good kids who made some “incredibly irresponsible and poor choices.” The news came after four players were ruled academically ineligible.
Two of the 12 players were not involved and remain on scholarship. Southeastern had a record of 14-4. The school has the most wins of any men’s basketball program in junior college history with 1,613.
