"I've decided to leave the University of Kentucky because of personal reasons," Phillips said. "I appreciate everything Coach DeMoss and the University have done for me. I'm really going to miss everyone and it has been a really great experience for me. I just feel I need to make a change."
Phillips, a 5-5 point guard from Oak Ridge, Tenn., started 54 consecutive games in her two-year career, including all 34 games during the 2004-05 season. She averaged 4.6 points and 28.6 minutes per game as a sophomore and led the team in assists both seasons.
"Angela has been a big part of our team the last two years, and we wish her the best of luck in whatever she decides to do in the future," DeMoss said.
Phillips has not made a decision as to where she will transfer.
