With a big game at No. 2 Virginia looming this weekend, fourth-ranked Duke released top reserve Rasheed Sulaimon on Thursday.

“Rasheed has been unable to consistently live up to the standards required to be a member of our program,” coach Mike Krzyzewski said in a statement. “After Rasheed repeatedly struggled to meet the necessary obligations, it became apparent that it was time to dismiss him from the program.”

Sulaimon, a junior guard, had averaged 7.5 points and 2.0 rebounds in 19.3 minutes this season. He scored three points in 12 minutes during Duke’s 77-73 loss at Notre Dame on Wednesday.

The Blue Devils (17-3, 4-3 ACC) play at Virginia (19-0, 7-0) on Saturday in a game that could eliminate Duke from contention for the ACC season title.
