WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - Purdue forward Jacob Lawson is leaving the program after two seasons.
In a release from the athletic department, coach Matt Painter said Lawson had requested and was given his release. Painter went on to say he enjoyed having Lawson in the program and wished him well.
The North Carolina native was a part-time starter last season and finishes his career in West Lafayette with averages of 2.3 points and 2.0 rebounds in 58 career games.
He is the second player to leave the program this week. Painter also announced Thursday that Sandi Marcius, a redshirt junior, had sought and been granted his release. From Croatia, Maricius averaged 2.1 points and 2.1 rebounds in 75 career games.
The school did not provide details about the future destination of either player.
