Six Tulane men's basketball players transferring

  •  

NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Six Tulane basketball players are transferring and men's coach Ed Conroy says he is disappointed that 2011-12 Conference USA freshman of the year Ricky Tarrant is part of the mass exodus.

He said Friday that Tarrant's departure is unexpected but the other transfers are not surprising.

Tulane is coming off its first 20-win season and postseason tournament since 2000. It will have no returning players who averaged even 5.0 points this past season.

Conroy says junior Josh Davis could turn professional or play somewhere else as a grad student. The first-team All-Conference selection led the league in rebounding and will graduate in May. The coach says Tarrant wants to play closer to his home in Birmingham, Ala., and the others leaving are reserves looking for more playing time.
