High-scoring guard has not played since 2010-11 season

Robert Morris University head men’s basketball coach Andrew Toole announced Tuesday that guard Karon Abraham (Paterson, N.J. / Harp Academy) has been dismissed from the program due to violation of team and University rules.

“In the best interests of our program we've decided to dismiss Karon Abraham from the Robert Morris University men's basketball team,” Toole said. “We’re disappointed that Karon will no longer be part of our program, but we hold our student-athletes to extremely high standards, not only on the court but off the court, as well.”

Led by Toole, the Colonials tied a school record for victories in 2011-12 with 26, posting an overall record of 26-10 (.722). RMU finished with a mark of 13-5 (.722) in the Northeast Conference and advanced to its fourth consecutive NEC Tournament championship game, falling at Long Island (3/7/12), 90-73.

Robert Morris accepted a bid to the 2012 CollegeInsider.com Postseason Tournament, its fourth postseason appearance in the last five years, where it advanced to the quarterfinals after road victories over Indiana State (3/13/12) and Toledo (3/17/12) before falling at Fairfield (3/21/12), 67-61.
