Long Beach State Dismisses Guard Michael Carter III from the Basketball Program
Hours before Long Beach State Beach men's basketball team was set to take on UC Irvine at the Pyramid, Head Coach Dan Monson and the LBSU Department of Athletics dismissed junior guard Michael Carter III from the program Saturday afternoon.
By the numbers:
Carter III transferred from the University of Washington and appeared in 13 games for the Sharks this season, averaging 14.6 points a game.
Carter played Friday night, scoring 15 points in a 71-68 loss to UCI.
A news release did not give a reason why Carter was cut from the program.
