USC basketball: Moore, Washington request releases to transfer
USC basketball players Alexis Moore and Curtis Washington have asked for and received release from their scholarships so they can seek opportunities elsewhere, Trojans Coach Kevin O’Neill said.
“I wish each of those guys the very best and thank them for their contributions,” O’Neill said.
Last week, forward Garrett Jackson received his release to transfer.
The exits are not unexpected from a team that finished 6-26 and needs roster space. The Trojans have numerous starters returning from season-ending injuries. They will also add two redshirts who were ineligible this season and at least two incoming recruits.
Moore, a 6-foot-2 guard from Long Beach, played in every game, starting 18. He averaged 4.3 points a game and made 29% of his shots.
Washington, a 6-10 forward from Kentucky, did not play this season after suffering a shoulder injury during preparation for the Trojans’ exhibition tour of Brazil last summer.
