Singleton leaves Georgia Basketball

ATHENS - University of Georgia basketball player Rashaad Singleton, a junior center from Campbellton, Fla., has decided to leave the Bulldogs' program, according to an announcement Saturday from head coach Dennis Felton.

Singleton averaged 2.7 points and 2.7 rebounds over 72 career games at Georgia, 18 of which he started at center. Last season, he was one of just three Bulldogs to have played in all 33 games. He led the team in blocked shots that year with 36, ranked second as a freshman in 2006 with 43 and was leading the Bulldogs again this season with 17 rejections.

"Rashaad wants to play more and he believes there may be a better opportunity for himself at another school," Felton said. "I am very proud of the strides that he's made in his 2 ½ years at Georgia, both as a student and an athlete. We have enjoyed having him and I wish him the very best."

Singleton established career highs with 16 points, 10 rebounds and seven blocks in Georgia's 2007-08 season opener against Jacksonville State.

"I've decided to part ways with the Georgia program for the purpose of transferring to another school," Singleton said. "It is my hope that I can stay at UGA through Spring Semester so I can complete my academic work for the school year. There are no hard feelings at all and I'd like to wish my teammates the best of luck this season and in the future."
