On Friday afternoon UNO Athletic Director Trev Alberts released a statement saying they were made aware of an incident that happened in the morning of August 3rd and involved three players, Preston Hodge, Matt White and Alex Simonson.
After an internal investigation, which Alberts says included a discussion with the Omaha Police Department, Hodge and White were dismissed from the team and are no longer on scholarship.
In addition, Simonson has been suspended pending further investigation by the athletic department. "We are extremely disappointed in the actions of these students," Alberts says. "We will not tolerate any misconduct of this nature. We will continue to work diligently to ensure our student athletes understand the importance of tolerance and respect for others”.
All three were ticketed for disoderly conduct.
