MANHATTAN, Kan. — Kansas State men’s basketball head coach Bruce Weber announced a series of player departures from the program on Tuesday evening. Sophomore guard Jevon Thomas is transferring and and guards Marcus Foster and Tre Harris have both been dismissed from the program.

“Marcus and Tre have been unable to live up to the standards that we expect of our players,” Weber stated in a news release. “Hopefully, they will learn from this experience and make the necessary progress to continue their basketball careers elsewhere.”

Weber spoke more highly of Thomas.

“As for Jevon, he has worked diligently to succeed in our program both athletically and academically. He has made tremendous strides during his time at K-State but he’s come to the decision he wants to be closer to home,” Weber said.

Foster’s 12.5 points per game led the Wildcats, and he made 38 more three-pointers than any other player on the team last season. Harris played in 21 games as a true freshman and led the Wildcats in thee-point percentage at .455. Thomas played in 52 games in two years for Kansas State, and averaged 4.5 points, 3.3 assists and 3 rebounds per game last season.
