Marquette senior Todd Mayo is leaving the Big East program to pursue a professional career, the school announced late Wednesday.
"We wish Todd nothing but the best and appreciate his contributions to the program -- not only since I arrived at Marquette, but during his entire career," said first-year head coach Steve Wojciechowski. "I completely understand his desire to continue his career at the professional level and support his decision."
Mayo averaged 11.3 points and 2.7 rebounds last season.
He's the younger brother of former Southern California standout and NBA veteran O.J. Mayo.
