C-USA reshuffles games in wake of hurricanes

Three Conference USA football games involving four teams have been rescheduled or relocated after having been impacted by a pair of Gulf Coast hurricanes.

The Southern Mississippi-Houston football game postponed because of Hurricane Rita was rescheduled for Sunday, Nov. 13.

The Southern Miss-Marshall game on Tuesday, Nov. 8, will not be changed. That means the Golden Eagles will play the Cougars five days after playing the Thundering Herd.

Golden Eagles coach Jeff Bower had hoped the game at Marshall, which is being televised by ESPN2, would be moved to Nov. 5 to give his team time to prepare for the makeup game at Houston.

The Houston game, originally scheduled for Sept. 24, was pushed back until November when Rita threatened the Texas Gulf Coast. The afternoon game will be played at the Cougars' Robertson Stadium.

The Tulane-Southern Miss game, originally scheduled for Sept. 4, was postponed until Nov. 26 when Katrina devastated Mississippi and Louisiana.

Tulane's game against Marshall on Oct. 29 has been moved to Mobile, AL,, because of Katrina.

The game originally was scheduled to be played at Tulane, which left its campus the day before Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans.

The game will be played at 7 p.m. EDT.

Memphis player booted after Beale St. incident

MEMPHIS — Memphis coach John Calipari dismissed guard Jeremy Hunt from the Tigers on Tuesday for violating team policy and an agreement with the university.

Hunt was suspended indefinitely from the team after an incident on Beale Street on Sept. 18. At about the same time, Hunt broke his hand in what he said was an accident during shooting practice.

``I think the university and I have gone out of our way to give Jeremy every chance to be a part of this program, but we can not allow his actions to continue to be an ongoing distraction for this team,'' Calipari said.

Hunt was charged with domestic assault Jan. 10 after an ex-girlfriend told authorities that he came to her home and beat her. He later agreed to an order of protection barring the two from any contact and from carrying a firearm.

Hunt met with Calipari and athletic director R.C. Johnson on Tuesday.

``Jeremy knew he had very little room for error after last year's incident,'' Johnson said. ``I believe that he was given more than his fair share of opportunities to be a part of our basketball team.''

Hunt had a career-high 24 points against Northeastern in the 2005 NIT and averaged 9.5 points in 66 games.

Calipari said Hunt will stay in school and finish his degree.
