Alexander Asks for Release, Will Transfer

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Santa Clara University head basketball coach Kerry Keating announced Friday sophomore guard Troy Alexander has asked for and been granted a release from his scholarship.

"While I have enjoyed my time at Santa Clara, I feel I can contribute on a larger scale somewhere else," said Alexander. "I have made life-long friends with my Bronco teammates and coaches; and wish them the best of luck in the future. I would like to thank everyone who supported me and the Bronco team during my time at Santa Clara."

Alexander, a sophomore from Dallas, Texas (Highland Park), played in 31 games this season, starting one. In 7.8 mpg, he averaged 1.2 ppg with 0.7 apg and 0.5 spg. His freshman season ended early due to injury. Prior to his injury last season, he played in 13 games, starting seven. In 15.2 mpg, he averaged 1.2 ppg, 2.5 apg and 0.6 spg.

"We appreciate Troy's effort as a Bronco during his time here, as he was an exemplary student, teammate and citizen. We respect his desire to play more and wish him success in his future," said Keating.
