ATLANTA (AP) -Georgia center Rashaad Singleton did not accompany the team to Spokane, Wash., for Saturday night's game against Gonzaga and plans to transfer to another school.
The junior from Campbellton, Fla., led Georgia with 17 blocked shots but recently lost his starting job to freshman Jeremy Price.
``Rashaad wants to play more and he believes there may be a better opportunity for himself at another school,'' coach Dennis Felton said. ``I am very proud of the strides that he's made in his 2 1/2 years at Georgia, both as a student and an athlete. We have enjoyed having him and I wish him the very best.''
Singleton had his best game with 16 points, 10 rebounds and seven blocks in a season-opening win over Jacksonville State. The 7-footer said he plans to remain enrolled at Georgia through spring semester.
``There are no hard feelings at all and I'd like to wish my teammates the best of luck this season and in the future,'' Singleton said.
Singleton was averaging 2.7 points and 3.3 rebounds. Entering Saturday night's game, Price is averaging 9.9 points and 5.0 rebounds.
Singleton is the third prominent player Georgia has lost this year and the Bulldogs are down to 10 scholarship players. Felton dismissed forward Takais Brown before the season and starting guard Mike Mercer on Nov. 19.
