Glover dismissed from Wisconsin hoops after arrest


MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin freshman Jeremy Glover has been kicked off the men's basketball team after being arrested last week on charges of burglary and possession of stolen property.

The 18-year-old Glover is a walk-on guard from Haymarket, Va. He and teammate Diamond Taylor were suspended from the team after campus police say they responded to a call of an attempted burglary at a dorm on Sept. 6.

Authorities say they saw the two leaving the building, and confiscated iPods, a cell phone and over $400 in cash. Glover is scheduled to appear in Dane County Circuit Court on Monday.

Athletic Board chairman Walter Dickey said Glover was dismissed for violating the student-athlete discipline policy.

A school spokesman said Wednesday he couldn't comment on Taylor's status.
