Four players, including one starter, will not be on the University of San Francisco men's basketball team next season, the athletics department announced Tuesday.

Junior guard De'End Parker has been dismissed for "conduct detrimental to the program" after only one season with the Dons.

Parker, who transferred to USF from UCLA, averaged 11.7 points and 3.0 rebounds in 29 games.

Reserve center Frank Rogers and Joe Edmonds will also leave The Hilltop after one season. Rodgers had transferred into USF from Cabrillo College. Edmonds did not play his freshman season.

Dominique O'Connor, who has missed parts of three seasons due to multiple knee injuries, will retire from basketball but will remain at the school to complete his undergraduate degree.

The Dons had five players transfer last season, which included starters Perris Blackwell and Mikey Williams.
