The Arizona Wildcats have announced that sophomore guard Devonaire Doutrive has been dismissed from the program for violation of team rules.

The school released the following statement from coach Sean Miller on Friday:

“Effective immediately, Devonaire Doutrive has been dismissed from our men’s basketball program for violation of team rules. He will continue to receive academic aid and support through the remainder of the current semester. We wish him well in the next steps of his academic and athletic career.”

The 6-foot-5 Doutrive, who was suspended for the first two games this season because of a team rules violation, averaged 6.3 points, 3.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists in three games. He had two points and four rebounds in Thursday’s 71-64 win over South Dakota State.

The dismissal ends an all-over-the-place career for Doutrive at Arizona. A late addition to the 2019 recruiting class, he averaged 3.3 points and 3.0 rebounds in 26 games as a freshman before announcing in May he was transferring from the program. Less than a month later, though, he announced he was returning to Arizona only to end up sitting out the first three games of his sophomore campaign.

The highlight of Doutrive’s brief Arizona career came last February, when he hit the game-winning shot at Oregon State.
