Terrence Samuel, a sophomore guard for the University of Connecticut Men's Basketball Team, will transfer at the end of the spring semester, according to a news release from the athletic department.
Samuel, who lives in Brooklyn, started eight of the 65 games he played during his two years at the university, averaging 3.0 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.2 assists per game, athletic department officials said.
He averaged 4.5 points per game during six of the 2014 NCAA tournament games, helping the Huskies secure the national title. Samuel played all 35 games of the 2015 season and averaged 3.6 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game.
"Terrence has been a player who has always given his best on the court and in the classroom," UConn Coach Kevin Ollie said in a statment Thursday. "We thank him for his contributions to the program and wish him good luck and much success in all his future endeavors."
It's not clear where he's going.
