COLLEGE STATION, Texas (AP) - Auburn coach Terri Williams-Flournoy has dismissed senior forward Hasina Muhammad from the team.

Muhammad had been scheduled to return Sunday after serving a two-game suspension for fighting with Alabama’s Breanna Hayden during a game.

But Williams-Flournoy cited violation of unspecified team rules for the decision, saying Tigers “student-athletes have to be held accountable for the choices they make.” Auburn announced the dismissal just before Auburn played at No. 12 Texas A&M.;

Muhammad played in 19 games this season, starting four. She averaged 9.1 points per game overall and a team-high 13.7 points in Southeastern Conference games.

Her 169 blocks ranks fifth on Auburn’s career charts, and she’s seventh with 224 steals.

Auburn says Muhammad is on track to graduate in May with a degree in physical education/teacher education.
