The often spectacular but periodically interrupted University of Delaware basketball career of Jarvis Threatt has come to a premature end.

Delaware announced Tuesday that Threatt has been dismissed from the basketball team prior to what would have been his senior season for more UD rules violations.

UD offered no specifics in a short statement and would provide no comment, athletic director Eric Ziady said. A press release cited "violations of team rules."

Threatt had been a key member of Delaware's 2013-14 men's basketball team, which won the school's first Colonial Athletic Association championship and secured UD's first NCAA Tournament bid in 15 years. The Blue Hens finished 25-10.

A 6-foot-2 combo guard, Threatt was third on the team in scoring (18.0 ppg), third in rebounds (5.8 rpg) and first in assists (5.4) and steals (2.5). He was named Most Outstanding Player of the CAA Tournament.

But his junior year also included two disciplinary infractions. He was left home for an important Jan. 18 game at Northeastern by coach Monte Ross after missing a class.
