Missouri has dismissed junior guard Wes Clark for a violation of the athletic department’s academic policies, the school announced in a release on Tuesday night.

The 6-foot guard from Michigan started all 25 games for Missouri this season and was a key perimeter threat for the Tigers during his three seasons with the team.

“Wes Clark had failed to meet the academic expectations of the Mizzou Athletics Department and is no longer a member of the men’s basketball program,” said the Missouri statement. “Due to this issue relating to academics, Mizzou Athletics will have no further comment.”

During his junior season, Clark averaged 9.8 points, 3.0 assists and 3.0 rebounds per game while shooting 37 percent from the field and 37 percent from the 3-point line. Without Clark in the lineup, Missouri will turn to freshman guard Terrence Phillips and sophomore guard Tramaine Isabell as the team’s primary ball handlers.
