UB Bulls dismiss star player Justin Moss

AMHERST, N.Y. (AP Modified) – University of Buffalo announced today that star forward Justin Moss is no longer a player on the UB Bulls men’s basketball team. Moss was last year’s Mid-American Conference Player of the Year. The UB Bulls were the MAC champions in 2015 and Moss is credited for a huge part in that success.

In a carefully worded announcement issued Monday, the school said Moss is not currently enrolled in classes or participating in university activities. The school declined to comment further by citing federal privacy laws protecting student records.

Moss was one of three basketball players accused of stealing money from a dorm room. The other two students allegedly involved, Mory Diane and Raheem Johnson, are still enrolled in classes and still members of the Bulls.

Moss had a breakout junior season in which he averaged 17.5 points and 9.2 rebounds, and led the Bobby Hurley-coached Bulls to their first NCAA Tournament appearance. Buffalo lost its opening game 68-62 to fifth-seeded West Virginia.

The loss of Moss is the latest blow to hit the Bulls this offseason. Hurley left Buffalo to coach at Arizona State and was followed by Bulls starting forward Shannon Evans.
