Lucas-Perry, a 6-foot-3, 189-pound freshman guard from Grand Blanc, Mich., averaged 4.0 points, 1.6 rebounds and 0.8 assists per game in five games (no starts) this season. He averaged 9.8 minutes per game.

His most productive appearance came on Nov. 19 vs. UMKC when he tallied nine points, five rebounds and two assists in an 81-62 win. Lucas-Perry saw four minutes of action in Saturday's win over Illinois, hitting his only field goal attempt in the first half.

"We wish Laval the best of luck," said Arizona interim head coach Kevin O'Neill. "He is a great kid. Unfortunately, he felt that opportunities would be better for him elsewhere."

The 21st-ranked Wildcats will next be in action on Sunday, Dec. 16, when the team hosts Fresno State. The contest tips-off at 1 p.m. MST and can be seen on FSN Arizona.
