UW vs Niagara

Wyoming guard Bradley Belt cheers on his teammates as they play Niagara at the Arena-Auditorium last year in Laramie.

LARAMIE -- Preseason practice hasn't started for Wyoming's men's basketball team. Yet the Cowboys are already down a player.

Wyoming coach Allen Edwards has dismissed freshman guard Bradley Belt from the team for a violation of team rules, according to a release from the school. Edwards issued a statement, but the school said the athletics department wouldn't be commenting any further.

Belt, a native of Huntsville, Alabama, never played for Wyoming after taking an academic redshirt last season. He came to Wyoming by way of Washington Academy in Greenville, North Carolina.
