Alabama starting guard Trevor Lacey transferring

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama guard Trevor Lacey is transferring before his junior season.

Crimson Tide coach Anthony Grant said Tuesday that he has granted the 2-year starter a release from his scholarship.

Lacey called the move "a family decision to pursue other opportunities." 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 and 3.8 rebounds and led the team with 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 says it was a hard decision to make and feels he improved last season.

He was a 2-time Alabama Mr. Basketball at Huntsville's Butler High School and a Parade All-American.
