LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraska basketball coach Tim Miles has announced that junior guard Deverell Biggs has been dismissed from the team.

In a statement Tuesday, Miles did not say specifically why Biggs was let go. Miles said: “We have consistently emphasized accountability for our student-athletes on the court, off the court and in the classroom. Individual accountability affects the entire group.”

Biggs appeared in 15 games and was the Cornhuskers’ third-leading scorer at 9.9 points a game.

Miles said he hopes Biggs remains at Nebraska through the spring semester and finds another school where he can play. Biggs declined to comment.

Biggs, who redshirted last season, was suspended the first three games as a result of being arrested for drunken driving in Omaha in December 2012.
