Iowa State Cyclones guard Bubu Palo was dismissed from the team on Saturday.

Iowa State Cyclones guard Bubu Palo was dismissed from the team on Saturday. 

This development was confirmed by the Des Moines Register's Randy Peterson, who says Palo's dismissal was a fallout from an appeal of a decision to reinstate him into the team following a second-degree sexual abuse charge. 

A news release from Iowa State by way of The Gazette says,"The University has determined Palo can no longer be a member of the basketball team.

"Student disciplinary matters are covered by federal privacy laws, and as a result, Iowa State University will have no further comment." 

According to Peterson, an "unidentified person or agency" filed the appeal, which was handled by Iowa State's Office of Judicial Affairs. He also adds neither Palo nor head coach Fred Hoiberg returned phone messages. 

The victim of the alleged sexual abuse case says she rode home with Palu and Spencer Cruise on May 18, 2012 but ended up at a house in Ames, Ia. owned by Cruise's family

She told authorities Palu and Cruise committed a sexual act against her will, even presenting a torn blouse as evidence. Forensic evidence later revealed part of the blouse was torn after it was washed, clearing Palu to be reinstated in January after the charges were dismissed. 

Back then, Palu said, "The way she described the series of events from that night were completely false." 

His dismissal from the squad stems from him violating ISU's Code of Conduct, per the Associated Press via ESPN. 

Palo is an Ames native who would have been a senior this season. He suited up for the Cyclones as a reserve in 17 games in 2012, averaging 2.8 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists.
