Ole Miss Dismisses Dundrecous Nelson

(Hugh Kellenberger/Jackson Clarion Ledger)

Dundrecous Nelson was dismissed from the Ole Miss basketball program on Thursday after being arrested and charged with possession of drug paraphernalia less than 48 hours earlier. The 5'11 sophomore was leading the team in scoring at 11.6 ppg and was a big part of running the Rebels offense. Coach Andy Kennedy was searching for leadership even with Nelson on the team for the 10-5 Rebs. Looks like SEC play just got a lot tougher for this Ole Miss team.
