KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Alexa Middleton has left Tennessee's program and intends to transfer.
Lady Volunteers coach Holly Warlick said Friday that Middleton is ''a great young lady who felt like she needed a change, and we will do our best to help her find that opportunity.''
The 5-foot-9 guard from Murfreesboro, Tennessee, will complete her spring semester at Tennessee.
Middleton made 13 starts as a junior this past season and averaged 7.9 points, 2.3 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 25.5 minutes. Middleton also had a team-high 42 3-pointers.
In a statement from the school, Middleton thanked Tennessee's coaching staff as well as her teammates and the Lady Vols fans.
Middleton said that ''I just felt I needed to go somewhere to reach the goals I have set.''
