TUCSON, Ariz. - University of Arizona men's basketball player Josiah Turner announced Wednesday that he will transfer to another school. He has yet to make a decision on which school he will attend.

Turner, a 6-foot-3, 192-pound guard from Sacramento, Calif., averaged 6.8 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game in 29 appearances in his recently completed freshman season. He connected on 41.7 percent of his field goal attempts (63-of-151), including 22.6 percent (7-of-31) from three-point range, and averaged 24.9 minutes per game. He posted career-high totals of 15 points on Feb. 23 vs. USC and seven assists against Utah (Feb. 11).

"I learned a lot in my year at Arizona and would like to thank my coaches, teammates and the fans for all of their support," said Turner.

In his one season in Tucson, Turner made 17 starts and scored in double figures five times and passed out five or more assists on three occasions.

"Josiah made a great deal of progress as a student-athlete in his year with us," said Arizona head coach Sean Miller. "He will finish this semester and leave in good academic standing. All of us at Arizona wish him well in his future."
