MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - West Virginia forward Aaric Murray has left the Mountaineers after one season.
Coach Bob Huggins announced Murray's departure Monday but didn't give a reason. He says it was a mutual agreement that it would be in Murray's best interest to finish his college career elsewhere.
The 6-foot-10 Murray averaged 8.8 points and 5.9 rebounds last season as a junior. He transferred to West Virginia from La Salle and sat out the 2011-12 season.
Murray is the fifth player to leave from last season's team.
Guards Jabarie Hinds and Aaron Brown and forwards Keaton Miles and Volodymyr Gerun also asked for their release.
The Mountaineers went 13-19 last season, the worst record in Huggins' 31 years as a head coach.
