Hoops: REGGIE MOORE DISMISSED

ROCK BOTTOM. That's the place Reggie Moore finds himself, and what he posted on his twitter account, after Washington State SID issued a brief release late Monday afternoon that head man Ken Bone had dismissed the starting senior point guard from the program.

In a shocking announcement, Bone announced that Moore, the reigning Pac-12 assists champion, is no longer part of the Cougars program. He was dismissed for a violation of team rules. "Reggie has been an important part of the basketball program for the last three years and I wish him the very best in the future," Bone said.

Moore was third on the Cougs last year with 10.2 points per game and led the Pac-12 with 5.2 assists per contest. The Seattle native was a three year starter for Washington State after arriving to Pullman from Brewster Academy in New Hampshire via Seattle's Rainier Beach High.

Attempts to reach Moore were unsuccessful by CF.C. At around 4 p.m. Moore tweeted "Rock bottom" on his twitter account.

Moore had some previous off the court issues at WSU. On Dec. 11, 2010, he was cited by the WSU Police Department for possession of marijuana (less than 40 grams) and drug paraphernalia, both misdemeanors. A little less than a month later, on Jan. 5 he was arrested on a Whitman County Prosecutor's Office summons.

With Moore out, the Cougars front court is now decidedly green. Moore and graduating senior Marcus Capers were the two main guards who brought the ball up the floor last season. Potential current players on the roster who could fill that role could include DaVonte Lacy, Mike Ladd and/or Royce Woolridge.
