GAINESVILLE -- UF men's basketball coach Billy Donovan said on Wednesday that sophomore point guard Jai Lucas is transferring after this semester.
Lucas informed Donovan of his decision on Wednesday morning, according to Donovan. "I think there was a point that Jai wasn't totally happy," Donovan said.
A McDonald's All-American out of high school, Lucas started as a freshman for the Gators in 2007 but apparently is unhappy with his current role on the team. Lucas started for the Gators on Monday in an exhibition win against Warner but Lucas was outperformed by freshman point guard Erving Walker, a New York City product.
Walker played more minutes than Lucas in the win and scored 13 points and had six assists.
