Redshirt sophomore Samir Doughty transferring from VCU

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) VCU says rising redshirt sophomore guard Samir Doughty has decided to transfer.

New coach Mike Rhoades says the decision came by mutual agreement and he wished Doughty well.

The 6-foot-4 guard from Philadelphia was the Rams' fourth-leading scorer last season. He averaged 9.8 points in just over 23 minutes per game, and was expected to have a larger role next season. He joins Ahmed Hamdy as players who have decided to leave VCU since Rhoades replaced Will Wade as coach.
