Harris Off MSU Basketball Team

Midwestern State forward Anthony Harris posted on his Facebook page Thursday night that he is no longer a member of the Mustangs' basketball team.

The post read:

"BREAKING NEWS...ANTHONY HARRIS IS NO LONGER A MUSTANG MY CAREER AT MIDWESTERN STATE UNIVERSITY HAS COME TO AN END!!! IVE HAD GREAT TIMES AND LEARNED ALOT FROM MY COACHES AND TEAMMATES BUT ENOUGH ABOUT ME I WISH THE TEAM NOTHING BUT SUCCESS AND LIKE I ALWAYS SAID ONE MONKEY DONT STOP THE SHOW I KNOW YOU GUYS WILL STILL WIN IT ALL"

The school announced in it's "Game Day" email later Thursday night that the team will be without Harris Friday against Cameron, because he "has been suspended indefinitely after breaking team rules."

He received a technical foul in the first half of MSU's LSC Quarterfinal against Texas A&M-Commerce, and did not play the rest of the game, standing on the end of the bench.

In his first year at MSU, Harris was averaging 11.5 points and 4.6 rebounds and led the team with 28 blocked shots, while starting 13 of the Mustangs' 27 games.

He was previously suspended twice, one after being ejected from the game at Central Oklahoma, and again for "conduct detrimental to the team" following MSU's first loss of the season, at Eastern New Mexico.
