Florida State guard, scoring leader Aaron Thomas declared ineligible


TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida State scoring leader Aaron Thomas has been declared ineligible for the season.

The school announced his removal from the team Friday night in a release. Coach Leonard Hamilton declined comment in the statement.

A 6-foot-5, 195-pound guard, Thomas was averaging 14.8 points. He led the team in scoring last season was widely considered the team’s best player.

The loss left the Seminoles without their top three scorers from last season and an already young roster.

Junior guard Montay Brandon (13.4 points per game) and freshman Xavier Rathan-Mayes (12.3 points) are the only other two players on the roster averaging more than 6.5 points per game.
