BU officials released a statement late this afternoon announcing Mayben has been "permanently dismissed from the men's basketball program."
University president Lois DeFluer added "we will not tolerate this behavior in our student athletes. We appreciate that Coach Broadus has given second-chances to athletes but our program can not take these risks and I have made this clear to both athletic director Joel Thirer and Broadus."
As for Mayben, this morning he plead not guilty to the 2 felony charges he faces in Troy.
He was freed on a 30-thousand dollar bail and returned to campus.
When police arrested him, he was also allegedly found to be in possession of 3.4 grams of an off-white powder that field-tested positive for cocaine. As a result, he was charged with third-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance and fifth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, both felonies.
