LaPhonso Ellis, Notre Dame's leading scorer and rebounder, is academically ineligible and will miss the rest of the season.

The accounting major passed all his courses but failed to maintain the 2.0 grade average Notre Dame requires for athletes to compete, Irish coach Digger Phelps said. Ellis, a 6-foot-9 junior from East St. Louis, Ill., was averaging 16.4 points and 10.5 rebounds.
