Erin Toller, a former in-state high school star, has been dismissed from the Kentucky women’s basketball team.
“We hold our players to a high standard at Kentucky,” Wildcats coach Kyra Elzy said Friday night in a school-released statement. “Unfortunately, Erin was not consistently meeting those standards, so she has been dismissed from the program. We wish Erin and her family nothing but the best moving forward.”
Elzy did not elaborate, and the statement said the school would have no further comment.
Toller, a 5-foot-7 guard, was a star at Sacred Heart in Louisville and scored more than 1,000 points in her prep career before entering Kentucky.
As a freshman last season, she appeared in five games and scored 11 total points.
With Toller’s departure, Kentucky has just 10 players on the roster.
The Wildcats are scheduled to open the 2021-22 season against Presbyterian on Nov. 9.
