Georgia Tech Kicks Glen Rice, Jr. Off Team After Shooting Incident

Shortly before the 2012 ACC Tournament began, Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets shooting guard Glen Rice Jr. was involved in a shooting incident outside an Atlanta nightclub and was suspended indefinitely by the team. Now it appears as though his career as a Yellow Jacket has come to an ignominious end.

The Associated Press via SI.com reports that Rice has now been kicked off the team altogether.

Coach Brian Gregory made the announcement Tuesday, less than a week after Rice, a graduate student manager and another person were charged. The 6-foot-5 junior guard will remain enrolled at school and complete his academic requirements for spring semester.

Gregory says "there are certain standards that have to be met both on and off the court, and there has to be accountability when those standards aren't met."

It's safe to say that neither Rice, nor his team, imagined this is the way Georgia Tech's leading scorer and rebounder would end his season and his time at the school.

Georgia Tech's Glen Rice, Jr. Involved In Shooting Incident

Georgia Tech shooting guard Glen Rice, Jr. has been charged after a shooting incident outside an Atlanta nightclub that occurred shortly before the ACC Tournament.

Rice was with Georgia Tech student manager London Warren in a Cadillac Escalade. He was charged with permitting unlawful operation, while Warren was charged with DUI. Another passenger, Steven Pryor, was charged with discharging a firearm while under the influence.

Rice remains suspended from Georgia Tech's basketball team stemming from an unspecified violation of team rules in February, while Warren has been dismissed.

Rice was one of Georgia Tech's leaders this season, leading the Yellow Jackets in both points per game with 13 and rebounds per game with 6.7. However, his Georgia Tech career has been pockmarked with disciplinary incidents — both under former coach Paul Hewitt and current coach Brian Gregory — and his future with the team is unclear.
