Auburn Basketball Dismisses Two Players, Suspends Another

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) -- Auburn has dismissed two basketball players and suspended a third indefinitely.

Coach Tony Barbee said Friday that Cedrick McAfee and Josh Langford were kicked off the team for violating team rules and Noel Johnson is suspended.

Barbee says Auburn has no further comment.

Langford averaged 5.2 points and 2.1 rebounds as a sophomore. McAfee was redshirted last season.

Johnson is a Clemson transfer who played in 19 games and started three last season after becoming eligible following the fall semester. He averaged 2.1 points and 1.5 rebounds.

Center Willy Kouassi and forward Bernard Morena have left the program after one season. That leaves the Tigers with five returning scholarship players, counting Johnson, and five signees. Guard Varez Ward is being investigated for alleged point shaving and is not expected back.
