STORRS, Conn. (May 7, 2015) --- Sophomore guard Terrence Samuel has requested and been granted his release from the UConn basketball program and will transfer at the end of the current semester.

In two years at UConn, Samuel appeared in 65 games, starting eight, and averaged 3.0 points, 1.7 rebounds, and 1.2 assists per game.

“Terrence has been a player who has always given his best on the court and in the classroom,” UConn Coach Kevin Ollie said. “We thank him for his contributions to the program and wish him good luck and much success in all his future endeavors.”

Samuel, a 6-4 guard from Brooklyn, N.Y., averaged 4.5 points a game and provided solid defense in the six games of the 2014 NCAA Tournament as the Huskies captured the National Championship. This past season, he saw action in all 35 games, averaging 3.6 points, 2.5 rebounds, and 1.6 assists.
