Oklahoma State announced Wednesday morning three players have been dismissed from the team for violating team rules.

Guard Michael Weathers, and forwards Maurice Calloo and Kentrevious Jones have all been dismissed from the program.

OSU head coach Mike Boynton was quoted in a news release as follows:   “We have a standard of behavior that we expect from everyone in our program and we’re going to move forward with the people who want to abide by those standards,” Boynton said. “I wish the others well as they move on.”

Boynton spoke with the media this afternoon in Stillwater to further elaborate on the decision.

Weathers had been suspended in the offseason after stealing a credit card.

Weathers transferred from Miami, Ohio, and is a sophomore.

Weathers was averaging 9.2 points a game and had played in all but one game this season.

Both Jones and Calloo are true freshmen in their first seasons at OSU.

Calloo had played in all but one game and averaged 2.5 points a game.

Jones had played in just eight games and averaged 1.3 points a game.

The three players being dismissed means OSU has just nine players on their roster.

The Cowboys are 8-9 overall, 2-3 in Big 12 play.

They visit Iowa State this Saturday at 5:00 pm.
