Junior guard Tyler Lamb transferring from UCLA

LOS ANGELES (AP) -- UCLA guard Tyler Lamb has decided to transfer.

No. 11 UCLA announced Sunday that Lamb has been released from the basketball team. The junior will leave school at the end of the fall quarter.

"We are very sad to see Tyler leave our program," UCLA coach Ben Howland said in a statement. "He is a great kid, and we have really enjoyed having him play for UCLA. We fully support his decision, and we wish him all the best in the future."

Lamb started 32 games for the Bruins last season and played in all 34 games as a freshman. He averaged 5.8 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.9 assists in two seasons.

Lamb played in just one game for UCLA this season following arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Oct. 9 and sitting out four weeks. He had fallen behind freshmen Shabazz Muhammad, Kyle Anderson and Jordan Adams for playing time among the Bruins' swingmen.

"I would like to thank the university, Coach Howland and his staff for the unparalleled opportunity to have been a part of UCLA's program," Lamb said in a statement. "However, I believe that it is in my best interest to find a new destination where I can continue to grow, both as a person and as a basketball player. I am eternally grateful to my coaches and teammates for everything they have given me, and I wish them the best going forward. I plan on enrolling in a new educational institution by next semester, and I have not yet determined my schools of interest."
