Craig Victor played in eight games for the Arizona Wildcats before he transferred in the middle of the 2014-15 season to join the LSU Tigers in search of more minutes. Well, if he’s going to keep playing college basketball, it’ll be somewhere that’s not Baton Rouge. He was dismissed from LSU on Thursday after playing eight games this year. He was also suspended for the first three games of their season

“We are obviously disappointed that we had to take this action,” LSU head coach Johnny Jones said. “It’s a privilege and an honor to wear the LSU uniform. When you commit to being part of our basketball program, there are expectations and standards that we demand from our players. Those expectations go beyond the basketball court.”
