Vanderbilt men's basketball is down to seven scholarship players after losing leading scorer Eric McClellan for the remainder of this season.
McClellan will not be enrolled in the spring semester after a violation of university academic policy.
He is expected to be reinstated this summer.
“I want to apologize to my family, coaches, teammates, and the entire Vanderbilt community for my actions that have led to this suspension,” said McClellan. “I take full responsibility for what has happened. I look forward to returning to school this summer and of continuing my goal of earning a degree at Vanderbilt and playing basketball for this coaching staff and with these players.”
