Teddy Allen made the All-Nebraska team in 2017 after leading the state in scoring with 31.6 points per game.

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Wichita State has dismissed Teddy Allen after he was arrested last week following a disturbance at a woman’s home.

Athletic Director Darron Boatright said Tuesday that he and coach Gregg Marshall wished Allen well but decided his dismissal was best for the basketball program.

Allen, who graduated from Boys Town in 2017, was the state’s Gatorade player of the year that season. He made the All-Nebraska team after leading the state in scoring with 31.6 points per game.

Allen was arrested last Thursday after a woman accused him of causing a disturbance at her home, destroying her iPhone and stealing keys before fleeing on foot. He was later charged with domestic violence property crime and petty theft, both misdemeanors. He faces a July 29 arraignment.

Allen, a 6-foot-5 forward, transferred from West Virginia and sat out last season after the NCAA denied his request for a waiver to play immediately. Nicknamed “Teddy Buckets” for his scoring ability, Allen was expected to start this coming season.

The Wichita Eagle reports Marshall said in a statement that he was disappointed and regretted that he couldn’t help Allen more.
