Arizona sophomore Lamont "MoMo" Jones is transferring out of the Wildcats program.

Multiple outlets in Arizona reported the news Monday night.

The 6-foot point guard averaged 9.7 points last season and helped the Wildcats reach the Elite Eight of the NCAA tournament. The reason behind Jones' decision is unclear, but it's worth noting that Sean Miller is about to enroll a heralded recruiting class headlined by Josiah Turner, a 6-3 point guard many expected to take Jones' starting job next season. Turner is widely considered to be among the top three point guards in the Class of 2011.

Momo was really one of my favorites in the team but it shows how far Sean Miller has brought the team that; a)Momo would have been coming off the bench next year, b) there's still plenty of depth at the guard spots.

Good luck where ever you end up finsihing your college career. The Wildcat nation will always be thankful for what you gave to the program in these transitional years.

Well that is a shame. It would have been nice to have his experience on the bench next year. But I wish nothing but the best for MoMo, and you can't fault him for wanting a starting job at another school. I hope that improves his NBA chances.
