Arizona's Justin Simon transferring after 1 season

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) Arizona freshman guard Justin Simon is transferring after playing sparingly his lone season in the desert.

An athletic 6-foot-5 guard, Simon played in 24 games for the Wildcats, averaging 2.3 points and 1.2 rebounds.

He was part of a heralded recruiting class by coach Sean Miller, but only Allonzo Trier saw significant minutes among the freshmen.

Freshman forward Ray Smith did not play last season after tearing his right ACL.
