Tony Barbee dismisses transfer forward Shareif Adamu

Shareif Adamu's Auburn career appears to be over after just six games played.

The hits for Auburn basketball just keep on coming. Head coach Tony Barbee announced Tuesday that transfer forward Shareif Adamu has been dismissed from the team, according to Joel A. Erickson of al.com.

Adamu was suspended before Auburn's game against DePaul for the ubiquitous violation of team rules. He played in six games for Auburn, notching a season-high 11 points in the Tigers' win over College of Charleston on Nov. 16. In six games, Adamu averaged 2.7 points and 2.0 rebounds in 12.3 minutes. He played his freshman season at Alabama State and transferred to Auburn from Georgia Perimeter College before this season.

Auburn (2-5) faces Grambling State Tuesday night and will try to break a four-game winning streak. The Tigers have lost their last three games by a combined 11 points, including a double-overtime defeat at the hands of Rhode Island on Nov. 25.

With Adamu gone, Auburn will have to rely on Jordon Granger to pick up the slack at power forward.
