UConn forward Rakim Lubin to transfer

STORRS, Conn. (AP) University of Connecticut forward Rakim Lubin has announced plans to transfer at the end of the spring semester.

The 6-foot-8, 260-pound freshman played sparingly for the Huskies, who finished a disappointing 20-15 and lost in the first round of the NIT.

Lubin appeared in 24 games, averaging one point and 1.2 rebounds per game.

The departure will leave the Huskies with just three returning frontcourt players - Amida Brimah, Phil Nolan and Kentan Facey.
