The following is a press release from Iowa State Athletic Communications.

AMES, Iowa – Iowa State head men’s basketball coach T.J. Otzelberger announced Friday that redshirt freshman Xavier Foster is no longer a member of the program.

“We hold our program to high standards and there are expectations that our student-athletes be accountable both on and off the court,” Otzelberger said. “After much consideration, I have decided that this is necessary as we continue to build our culture.”

Foster, an Oskaloosa, Iowa, native, played in seven games last season before his season ended on Jan. 11 due to a foot injury originally sustained in high school. He averaged 4.0 points in 7.8 minutes per game.
