Alabama starting guard Trevor Lacey transferring

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama guard Trevor Lacey, who led the team in assists and 3-pointers, is transferring before his junior season.

Crimson Tide coach Anthony Grant said Tuesday that he has granted the two-year starter a release from his scholarship.

``It was a family decision to pursue other opportunities,'' Lacey said in a release from the university. ``This definitely was not an easy decision to make. It's been great at Alabama during my two years. It was tough my freshman year coming off surgery and having to work my way back. I wanted to improve during my sophomore season and I thought I did that. I want to thank the coaches and staff, my teammates and all the fans for their support.''

He didn't say where he planned to finish his career.

Lacey was the only Tide player to start all 36 games last season. He averaged 11.3 points, 3.8 rebounds and 3.2 assists per game. He also made a team-high 62 3-pointers.

Lacey started 52 of 69 games the past two seasons. He was a two-time Alabama Mr. Basketball at Huntsville's Butler High School and a Parade All-American who was rated a five-star recruit.

``I enjoyed having the opportunity to coach Trevor for the two years he was here,'' Grant said. ``We certainly wish him the best of luck as he continues to pursue his education and his basketball career.''

Center Moussa Gueye, who started 27 games, announced earlier that he was transferring.
