Dundrecous Nelson, the awesomely-named Mississippi guard who is the team’s leading scorer (11.6 ppg), was dismissed from the Rebels Thursday after a most unfortunate drug arrest earlier this week. According to the Clarion-Ledger, a case of the munchies did Nelson in:
Nelson did not answer the door when the officer knocked. As the officer was leaving, he met a delivery person from Domino’s Pizza and asked him where he was headed (it turned out, it was to Nelson’s apartment).
Nelson then exited his home in order to get the pizza and attempted to quickly go back inside.
The officer confronted Nelson at that time. Upon finally entering the apartment the officer found eight roaches of marijuana made from cigarillos (small cigars that can be emptied and stuffed with the drug).
Eight roaches for three people, plus a pizza? Party on, Dundrecous.
The Rebels defeated SMU Tuesday, 50-48, but no thanks to Nelson, who shot 1-of-8 and picked up four fouls in 17 minutes. [Ledger]
