Reeves Nelson Dismissed From UCLA Basketball Team

Dec. 9, 2011

LOS ANGELES - UCLA Men's Basketball Coach Ben Howland has dismissed Junior forward Reeves Nelson from the team, he announced today.

"After much thought and deliberation, I have made the decision to dismiss Reeves Nelson from the UCLA Men's Basketball Team effective immediately," said Howland. "This decision is not one that I take lightly, but it is in the best interest of both the program and the student-athlete."

Nelson had started in only one game this season and played in six of the seven contests. He was seventh on the team in scoring at 5.7 points per game and fourth on the team in rebounding (4.5 rpg).

He was a first team All-Pac-10 selection after the conclusion of the 2010-11 season as he led UCLA in scoring (13.9 ppg) and rebounding (9.1 rpg).
