HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut has confirmed that basketball players Michael Bradley and Roscoe Smith have both been granted releases from their scholarships, a move that will allow them to transfer.

Sophomore Jeremy Lamb and freshman center Andre Drummond announced earlier this month that they will enter this year's NBA draft. Junior Alex Oriakhi is transferring to Missouri.

Smith, a 6-foot-8 forward, averaged just over four points and three rebounds in 33 games during his sophomore season. Bradley, a 6-10 redshirt freshman, was injured in the preseason and didn't play.
