GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) -Florida forward Alex Tyus, the team's second-leading scorer last season, has decided to transfer.
Coach Billy Donovan announced Tyus' departure Friday, a move that leaves the Gators with little frontcourt depth heading into next season.
Guard Nick Calathes declared for the NBA draft, forward Allan Chaney opted to transfer and incoming freshman DeShawn Painter asked to be released from his scholarship. Throw in Marreese Speights (left early for NBA), Jonathan Mitchell (transferred last spring), and Jai Lucas (transferred just days before this past season), and Donovan could lose as many as seven players in about a year.
Tyus, a sophomore from St. Louis, averaged 12.5 points and 6.2 rebounds last season.
