STORRS, Conn. (AP) - UConn says point guard Terrence Samuel has been granted his release from the team and plans to transfer.

Samuel averaged just more than 20 minutes a game backing up Ryan Boatright for the Huskies, who went 20-15 last season and lost in the first round of the NIT.

During his two years at UConn, Samuel appeared in 65 games, starting eight. He averaged 3 points, 1.7 rebounds and 1.2 assists.

Coach Kevin Ollie wished him well, saying in a statement Thursday night that Samuel gave his best “on the court and in the classroom.”

He is the second player to transfer from UConn in the offseason. Forward Rakim Lubin left the team last month.
