Kentucky guard Quade Green to transfer

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) — Sophomore guard Quade Green has announced he will transfer from the University of Kentucky.

A release from the university says Green notified the team of his decision on Wednesday. The Philadelphia native will be able to transfer to any school without any restrictions.

Green played in 43 games for the Wildcats over two seasons, averaging 9.0 points and 2.6 assists.

Green called the move “a difficult decision and one I didn’t take lightly.” He was third on last year’s team with 41 made 3-pointers.

Coach John Calipari said Green “felt like he was in a position that he couldn’t overcome and he had the maturity to come in and sit down and talk through it with me.”
