Just a day after Binghamton's starting point guard, Tiki Mayben, was arrested and charged with possession of and selling cocaine, five other players on the team were dismissed.

The team's star guard, Derrick "D.J." Rivera, and four other players were tossed off the team on Friday.

Malik Alvin, one of the dismissed players, was also key on last year's team that won the America East and went to the NCAA tournament. Corey Chandler hadn't even played a game with the Bearcats after being kicked out of the Rutgers program.

David Fine, the son of Syracuse longtime assistant Bernie Fine, and Paul Crosby were also dismissed.

Associate Director of Athletics for Communications John Hartrick said Friday night: "Their attitude and actions were deemed by Coach (Kevin) Broadus not to be up to the expectations of a student-athlete."

However, Hatrick said Friday's actions had nothing to do with Mayben. "Their dismissal was definitely unrelated," he said.

Binghamton has had numerous issues since the hiring of Broadus in 2007. The coach has brought on board several players with checkered pasts.

Hartrick said Broadus will not be reassigned. "I've been given no indication of that," he said.

Broadus did not immediately return calls to seeking comment.

However, he did issue a statement.

"It's important that everyone who is playing for Binghamton University and for me to be on the same page as to what kind of commitment we expect of our student-athletes, both on and off the court.

"There's only one captain steering this ship, and that's me. If any of the young men in our program don't respect the decisions that have been made or the rules we have in place, then they need to move on with their lives," he said.

Binghamton, according to the local Press & Sun-Bulletin newspaper, still has seven scholarship players on its roster for this season.

Mayben, a once highly touted guard who didn't qualify to play at Syracuse, was charged with two counts of criminal sale of a controlled substance, third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance. He pleaded not guilty.

So much for success.

Quote:LeBron James shares positive update on Bronny's return to action

Lakers' superstar LeBron James recently offered an encouraging update on his eldest son, Bronny, following Los Angeles' victory against the Rockets.

After committing to USC in May, Bronny James faced a challenging setback this summer when he suffered a cardiac arrest, stemming from a congenital heart defect.

LeBron shared optimism about Bronny's recovery, revealing that the USC commit is on the verge of returning to the basketball court.
During USC's recent game against Brown, Bronny took a step forward by warming up with his team, marking a significant milestone in his journey back to full participation.

"Today's game was the first game he got an opportunity to warm up with his team. He's almost there," the four-time NBA champion said, per Michael Corvo.
