MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Center Aaric Murray has left the WVU men’s basketball team.
“We came to a mutual agreement that it would be in his best interest to finish his collegiate career somewhere else,” said WVU coach Bob Huggins in a statement released today. .
The 6-foot-10 Murray played one season at WVU. He averaged 8.8 points and a team high 5.9 rebounds per game for the Mountaineers.
Murray had transferred from LaSalle after he averaged 15.2 points and 7.7 rebounds per game during his final season there.
Murray played some of his best games late in the season for WVU including an 11 point, eight rebound performance in a season ending loss to Texas Tech in the Big 12 Tournament at Kansas City. Murray scored in double figures in each of the final three games of the season as he found a role coming off the bench.
It’s believed Murray could transfer to another school and play immediately after graduating in the spring.
