JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. (March 20, 2007) - ETSU men's basketball coach Murry Bartow announced Tuesday that sophomore guard Dante Williams (Romulus, Mich.) has requested and will receive permission to transfer at the end of the spring semester.

 

Citing a desire for more floor time and a chance to play closer to home, Williams - a 6-2 guard who saw an average of 9.2 minutes a game and scored 3.4 points a contest - said he wanted to make the right personal decision.

 

"I appreciate the opportunity to have played at ETSU and I wish the team the best of luck in the future," Williams said. "I want to thank the coaching staff for working with me to make me a better player over the last two years."

 

Bartow said Williams has been an important part of the ETSU team the last two seasons.

 

"Dante has consistently worked hard in practice and done anything we asked of him," Bartow said. "We understand his decision to transfer and wish him all the best."

 

With Williams' departure the Bucs now have three scholarships open for the 2007-08 signing class.
