Oklahoma guard Booker to transfer

NORMAN, Okla. (AP) Oklahoma guard Frank Booker has decided to transfer, the school said Wednesday.

Booker averaged 5.0 points, 1.4 rebounds and 0.6 assists in 14.3 minutes per game as a sophomore this past season. Over the final 12 games, he averaged 6.8 points and shot 35.7 percent from 3-point range.

He scored a career-high 17 points in a Feb. 21 win at Texas Tech, 14 points in a Feb. 9 win over Iowa State and 12 points in the win over Dayton in the NCAA round of 32. He made 78 3-pointers in 64 games for the Sooners.

Booker, from Augusta, Georgia, said it was a tough decision, but he seeks a chance to play more and wants to move closer to home.
