Mike Mercer, a Junior guard from Snellville, Georgia, has been dismissed from the Georgia Bulldogs Basketball team, Dennis Felton announced today. Mercer was already serving a 15-game suspension for violating the UGA Athletic Department’s new academic attendance policy.
Mercer hasn’t played since February 10, 2006 at South Carolina. In that game, Mercer tore his anterior cruciate ligament and suffered a Grade 2 sprain to the medial collateral ligament.
As a freshman, Mercer averaged 11 points and 3 rebounds per game. As a sophomore, he averaged 13.6 points and 4.4 rebounds per game before suffering his season-ending injury.
