PITTSBURGH (AP) _ Pittsburgh basketball coach Ben Howland dismissed guard Kellii Taylor on Sunday for violating team policy, adding to the team's disciplinary woes.

Howland refused to disclose what policy Taylor violated, although the Beaver County Times, citing unidentified sources, reported Sunday that Taylor failed a drug test earlier in the week.

Taylor, a senior from Washington, D.C., played in 12 games this season and was averaging 5.7 points. He missed the first eight games because he was academically ineligible.

Taylor also missed six games last season while being treated for alcohol abuse.

Pittsburgh dressed only eight players Sunday for a 72-65 loss to Georgetown.

Isaac Hawkins, who is out this season with an injured leg, was recently arrested in his Pittsburgh apartment for marijuana possession. He faces a hearing this week, but Howland said he will remain on the team.

Center Chris Seabrooks was arrested in the fall for fighting and pleaded guilty to harassment and disorderly conduct, receiving a 90-day suspended sentence.

Freshman Donatas Zavackas was benched for two games this season for undisclosed reasons.

Howland also dismissed Derrick Worrell from the team for having a poor attitude. Last season, then-Pittsburgh player Fred Primus was arrested on theft charges during a road trip to Villanova.
