SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Notre Dame will be without leading scorer Jerian Grant for the rest of the season because of an academic problem.
The university posted a statement from Grant on its web site Sunday evening that said he is no longer enrolled in the school because of an academic matter he didn't handle properly. He says he takes responsibility for his lack of good judgment and the poor decision he has made.
Grant, the son of former NBA player Harvey Grant, was averaging 19 points a game. The news comes a day after the Irish (8-4) squandered an eight-point lead in the final 50 seconds in a loss to No. 3 Ohio State at Madison Square Garden.
Grant is the second high-profile athlete to be dismissed from Notre Dame in the past year for academics. Quarterback Everett Golson was suspended from school for the fall semester for academic impropriety, but has since been readmitted.
