Perry to Transfer from UW Men's Basketball Team

Dec. 2, 2006

SEATTLE - Red-shirt freshman Harvey Perry is leaving the University of Washington men's basketball team and will transfer to another school, Coach Lorenzo Romar announced Saturday.

The 6-foot-4, 210-pound guard played four of the team's six games, averaging 8.8 minutes in those outings. He scored at a 2.8-point clip this season with 1.8 rebounds and 1.0 assists per game for the 13th-ranked Huskies who have a 6-0 record.

A true freshman in 2005-06, Perry played 13 minutes in an exhibition win over Simon Fraser last season. Soon after that Nov. 6 contest, he was sidelined with a back injury that forced him to miss the entire season. Perry claimed a medical red-shirt season, enabling him to preserve four years of eligibility.

'Obviously we wish him the best because there is definitely no ill will on our end toward Harvey,' Romar expressed. 'We wish it could have worked out, but sometimes these things happen.

'Harvey hasn't made contact with any other schools. He said that he plans to finish this quarter and then transfer.'

Washington's fall quarter ends Dec. 8 with final exams the following week that conclude Dec. 15.

A product of Cheyenne High School in North Las Vegas, Nevada, Perry attended Brewster Academy in Wolfeboro, N.H. during the 2004-05 academic year.
