Georgia Tech has had its fill of Glen Rice Jr.

The Yellow Jackets booted the junior off the team Tuesday, less than a week after he was charged with permitting unlawful operation following a shooting incident near the school’s campus.

“There are certain standards that have to be met both on and off the court, and there has to be accountability when those standards aren’t met,” coach Brian Gregory said in a statement.

Rice led Georgia Tech (11-20) in scoring and rebounding this season, Gregory’s first as he starts to rebuild following Paul Hewitt’s tenure.

Rice will remain enrolled at the school through the spring semester.
