UC Davis men’s basketball coach Jim Les announced Tuesday night that freshman guard Tyrell Corbin would not be returning for the Aggies next season and will be looking to transfer at the end of the academic year.
“We’re appreciative of Tyrell being part of our basketball program and we wish him well,” Les said.
The announcement came less than two weeks after Les announced that sophomores Harrison Dupont, Alex Tiffin and Mike Kurtz would not be returning in 2012-13.
Corbin was a member of Les’ first recruiting class and was a fixture of the starting lineup for the majority of the season.
Overall, Corbin started 23 games, averaged 6.3 points per game and led the team with 91 assists in his sole season with UC Davis. Corbin also turned the ball over a team-high of 97 times.
With the departure of Corbin, Dupont and Tiffin, the Aggies have lost their three team leaders in turnovers from the 2011-12 season.
