On Wednesday, the University of Georgia announced that guard Ebukah Anyaorah has requested and received a release from his athletic scholarship. Anyaorah plans to transfer to another school in search of more playing time.
Anyaorah, a 6-4 guard from Suwanee, Georgia (North Gwinnett), averaged 2.7 points, 1.4 rebounds and 10.5 minutes per game in the 2009-10 season. He sat out 2008-09 due to injury. Anyaorah signed with Dennis Felton during the Spring 2008 signing period.
“I’d like to wish Ebuka the best as he continues his career,” Fox said. “I really appreciate his contributions to our program during the past year.”
“I have enjoyed my time at Georgia, but I have decided to pursue some other options in college basketball in hopes of more playing time,” Anyaorah said. “I just believe that it is in my best interests to explore other playing opportunities. I’ve made lasting friendships with my UGA teammates and I wish them nothing but success in the future.”
Anyaorah is the third UGA basketball player to transfer from the program this year. In March, DeMario Mayfield and Drazen Zlovaric announced their intentions to transfer. Mayfield has signed with UNC-Charlotte and Zlovaric has signed with Tennessee-Chattanooga.
