DePaul basketball suffered yet another step back Wednesday with the news that they had dismissed senior guard Charles McKinney for a violation of team rules.
Tom Negovan of WGN News later reported McKinney had been charged with three counts of battery.

McKinney (3.9 points per game, 1.9 rebounds per game in 2013-2014) was projected to start for the Blue Demons, who have already had a rough offseason after losing their only high school commit of the Class of 2014.
