Glenn Bryant granted release from Razorback basketball program

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (UofA) - Glenn Bryant of the University of Arkansas men's basketball team has asked for and been given a release, Razorback head coach Mike Anderson announced on Saturday.

Bryant (6-7, 190) completed his sophomore year with the Razorbacks in 2010-11 and during his two-year career with Arkansas averaged 3.4 points and 2.7 rebounds per game. This season he increased both his point and rebound production and had his best game against Mississippi Valley State when he came off the bench to record his only career double-double with 12 points and 10 rebounds in just 14 minutes.

"I met with Glenn this spring and he expressed the desire to be closer to his family," Anderson said.  "We granted his request and I wish him the best as he pursues another opportunity to play basketball."

"My time spent as a Razorback was a great learning experience both on and off the court," Bryant said.  "I will truly miss being a part of this great program."
