COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) South Carolina point guard Rakym Felder is no longer part of the Gamecocks basketball team.

Felder, a key freshman reserve for South Carolina's Final Four team two years ago, was dismissed from the program by coach Frank Martin on Monday.

The 5-foot-10 Felder, from Brooklyn, New York, was suspended last summer after his second arrest in less than a year. Felder was not enrolled last fall. He was allowed to return in the spring semester although he did not play.

Martin said there were guidelines Felder had to follow upon coming back "and unfortunately, he has not met those expectations."

Martin has not detailed those guidelines for Felder's return to the court.

Felder had 15 points in South Carolina's NCAA Tournament win over Duke in 2017
