Lacey to leave Tide basketball program

Posted: Updated:

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. Alabama sophomore guard Trevor Lacey has decided to transfer from the men's basketball program and has been granted his release, Crimson Tide head coach Anthony Grant announced on Tuesday.

"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."

As a sophomore this past season, the Huntsville, Ala., native was the only player on the Crimson Tide to start all 36 contests. He averaged 11.3 points and 3.8 rebounds a contest and led the team in assists per game (3.2) and three-pointers made (62) and attempted (166) during the 2012-13 campaign.   

"It was a family decision to pursue other opportunities," Lacey said. "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."

During his two seasons at the Capstone, Lacey played in 69 contests while making 52 starts, averaging 9.3 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.5 assists a game.
