TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama junior forward Justin Knox is
leaving the team and hopes to transfer to another team for next

The Mobile Press-Register reports that Alabama coach Anthony
Grant was taken aback by the decision of Knox, who averaged 6.3
points and 3.7 rebounds while playing in all the Tide games. He
confirmed Monday that Knox has been released from his scholarship.

Alabama before next season and could play as a graduate student for
another Division I school without sitting out a year.
