— Former Kansas basketball player Calvin Thompson was released by the CBA Topeka Sizzlers on Thursday.

``The number one contributing factor, in my opinion, was the deterioration of his physical skills,'' Sizzlers coach Mike Riley said. ``He no longer possessed the ability to play within the framework we had devised.''

During the Sizzlers' first two games, Thompson totaled 40 points (on 19-of-31 shooting), 14 rebounds and seven assists, but also committed a team-high 13 turnovers.
