Two Baylor basketball players have been dismissed for disciplinary reasons that have nothing to do with an NCAA probe into the school's athletic program, officials said.

Baylor Coach Gene Iba booted seniors Edwin Mitchell and Carlos Briggs, players who were among seven suspended last month by the NCAA in ruling concerning alleged recruiting violations.

But the action had nothing to do with the NCAA investigation, Iba told the Waco Tribune-Herald. "It was an internal matter."

The newspaper said that both players missed practice all last week even though practices are allowed when a player is under NCAA suspension.
