Robert Upshaw is a former consensus top 50 recruit, a potential first-round pick in next June's NBA draft and a rim protector so gifted that he leads the nation in blocks despite coming off the bench almost every game he played this season. What does it say about his off-court issues then that a 7-footer so talented has been unable to stick at either school he has played for?   Washington coach Lorenzo Romar announced Monday that he has dismissed Upshaw from the program for an unspecified violation of team rules. Fresno State previously booted Upshaw after his freshman season in 2013 when coach Rodney Terry grew tired of suspending the promising center and decided keeping him on the team was more trouble than it was worth.  “We wish Rob well as he moves forward in his life," Romar said Monday in a statement "We will do our best to support him in the future." Washington's decision to cut ties with Upshaw could easily condemn the Huskies to missing the NCAA tournament for a fourth straight season. Though Washington is 14-5 overall and boasts solid non-league wins over San Diego State and Oklahoma, the Huskies will have a hard time replacing a defensive anchor who parked himself in the middle of their two-three zone defense and averaged 8.2 rebounds and 4.4 blocks per game. Upshaw's ability to defend the rim and run the floor may still get him selected in next June's draft, but his off-court problems certainly jeopardize his chances of an NBA team plunking down guaranteed money to take him in the first round.  Drug use was one of the issues that led to his dismissal at Fresno State. He spent part of the summer after his freshman year at the Houston-based treatment program of John Lucas, a former NBA star whose career was derailed by substance abuse and who has gained national acclaim for helping rehabilitate athletes whose lives have careened off track. Washington assistant T.J. Otzelberger visited with Upshaw and the big man's family, friends and former coaches in hopes of assessing what went wrong at Fresno State and whether the off-court issues were likely to resurface. Upshaw convinced Otzelberger he was ready to make the necessary changes in his life, but he didn't meet the coaching staff's expectations during his redshirt season, leading to Romar prohibiting him from attending practice or sitting on the bench during games for the second half of last season. There were times Upshaw wasn't sure he'd ever have the chance to play for Washington, but he gradually won over the coaching staff by attending class, persevering through extra workouts and getting into the best shape of his life. He told Yahoo Sports last month that he had matured and his issues were behind him. "I made some bad choices," Upshaw said. "What happened is done and I can't change that, but I learned from it. I'm not doing it now. I'm definitely not doing it now. I'm in a better stage of my life. Basically, I just had to grow up." Turns out Upshaw may not have matured as much as he claimed, a sad development for a kid with so much natural ability. A blossoming NBA prospect who seemed to be putting his self-destructive past behind him is now once again facing an uncertain future.  - - - - - - - Jeff Eisenberg is the editor of The Dagger on Yahoo Sports.

Washington dismissed center Robert Upshaw, the national leader in blocked shots, from its program for a violation of team rules on Monday, a severe blow to the Huskies hopes of getting back to the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2011. Washington coach Lorenzo Romar announced the dismissal in a statement. Upshaw led the nation averaging 4.6 blocks per game and was already Washington's single-season record holder for blocked shots with 85 blocks in 19 games. Upshaw had made four starts, most of those coming when Jernard Jarreau went down with a knee injury.Yahoo Sports - NCAA Men's Hoops - Washington Huskies News

Utah players always try to find the best shot on every possession. Dakarai Tucker scored a career-high 19 points and Brandon Taylor added 14 to lead Utah to a 77-56 victory over Washington on Sunday. We may get sped up and turn the ball over sometimes but, for the most part, we've done a good job and we've grown so much in having a great pace offensively and getting what we call 'five shots''' Tucker and Taylor combined to make eight 3-pointers, giving No. 12 Utah (16-3, 6-1 Pac-12) its 15th straight home victory dating to last season. All six of the Utes' Pac-12 conference wins have come by double-digit margins.Yahoo Sports - NCAA Men's Hoops - Washington Huskies News

On a night Andrew Andrews missed most of his shots, he came back to hit the one that made all the difference. Andrews connected on a straightaway jumper with one second remaining, lifting the Washington Huskies past short-handed Colorado 52-50 on Thursday night for their third win in a row. ''I'm a perfectionist so I was still worried about all the ones I missed,'' Andrews said. ''I just really haven't gotten into that I made the shot, because I feel like I shot terrible today.'' Nigel Williams-Goss had 16 points to lead Washington (14-4, 3-3 Pac-12), which won at Colorado for the first time in its last five games here.Yahoo Sports - NCAA Men's Hoops - Washington Huskies News

The Senior Bowl's top prospects, like usual, are the big men. This time it's guys like wide-bodied Washington defensive tackle Danny Shelton and LSU left tackle La'el Collins who are trying to help cement their status as first-round picks in the much-scrutinized workouts heading into Saturday's game. The 6-foot-2, 343-pound Shelton went from being projected as anywhere from a fourth-round pick to an undrafted free agent after his junior season to a guy many project as going somewhere in the middle or early part of the first round. ''It's overwhelming,'' Shelton said.Yahoo Sports - NCAA Football - Washington Huskies News
