Memphis' Chris Jones kicked off Louisville basketball team

Louisville, KY - Former Melrose star Chris Jones is off the team at Louisville.

Our sister station in Louisville is reporting the school released a brief statement saying Jones had been dismissed from the team and there would be no further comment on the matter.

The dismissal comes just days after Jones was suspended for U of L's game at Syracuse for a violation of team rules, but he was reinstated for Saturday's game against Miami.

Jones is the Cards' third leading scorer this season, but has had a season long battle with coach Rick Pitino, twice benched during games.
