INDIANAPOLIS -

Junior Chrishawn Hopkins has been dismissed from the Butler men's basketball team for violation of team rules, head coach Brad Stevens announced Wednesday.

"I am sorry to have to announce that Chrishawn Hopkins has been dismissed from our team," said Stevens. "We consider it a privilege to represent Butler University as a member of our team. With that privilege comes a requirement and responsibility to meet the standard of our team rules."

Hopkins was one of four returning starters from last year's Butler team. The 6-1 guard from Manual High School played in all 37 Butler games a year ago, including 24 as a starter. He finished third on the team in scoring (9.1 ppg) and third in assists (56).
