Anyaorah to Transfer

ATHENS -Georgia basketball player Ebuka Anyaorah has requested, and been granted a release from his athletic scholarship, indicating his intention to transfer from the University, according to an announcement Wednesday from head coach Mark Fox.

"I'd like to wish Ebuka the best as he continues his career," Fox said. "I really appreciate his contributions to our program during the past year."

Anyaorah, a 6-4 guard from Suwanee, played in 28 of 31 games of the 2010 season, his only year of participation for the Bulldogs. He averaged 2.7 points, 1.4 rebounds and 10.5 minutes per game, with his season high of nine points coming in Georgia's win over Florida on Feb. 27.

A stress fracture in his right tibia, and the subsequent surgery to repair it, forced Anyaorah to miss the entire 2009 season. He played the 2010 campaign as a redshirt freshman.

"I have enjoyed my time at Georgia, but I have decided to pursue some other options in college basketball in hopes of more playing time," Anyaorah said. "I just believe that it is in my best interests to explore other playing opportunities. I've made lasting friendships with my UGA teammates and I wish them nothing but success in the future."
