The Citadel’s top basketball player, rising junior Matt Van Scyoc, will leave the program, two sources have confirmed to The Post and Courier.

Van Scyoc, a 6-6 forward from Green Lake, Wis., averaged a team-best 14.3 points and 5.3 rebounds for the 7-26 Bulldogs last season, shooting 36.5 percent from 3-point range. As a freshman in 2012-13, he averaged 11.1 points and was named to the Southern Conference all-freshman team.

Neither Van Scyoc nor coach Chuck Driesell could be reached for immediate comment. The sources said that Van Scyoc committed a violation of the military school’s honor code.
