LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Louisville coach Rick Pitino has announced that reserve sophomore forward Akoy Agau will transfer after this semester.

The 6-foot-8 Sudanese native has played in just three games after recovering from sports hernia surgery on July 29. Agau played in 19 contests last year but has fallen out of a frontcourt rotation featuring 6-10 veteran Mangok Mathiang and talented freshmen 6-10 Chinanu Onauaku and 7-foot Anas Mahmoud.

Pitino said in a release that he talked with Agau and they agreed it was in the player’s best interest “to transfer to another university where playing time will be more readily available.”

Agau thanked Pitino for the opportunity in the statement and said, “it is sad to leave, but this is the best decision for me.”
