Drew Denies Transfer Rumors

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- Larry Drew dismissed an Internet report that claimed the sophomore point guard would likely transfer out of North Carolina at the end of the season.

On Friday, BusterSports.com cited Bria Murphy -- Drew's alleged girlfriend -- as an influential figure in the decision-making process, while also suggesting that his parents were "involved with the program in an unhealthy way."

Drew learned of the report Saturday afternoon, and quickly shot down the rumor during his postgame press conference.

When asked if there was any truth to the report, Drew responded, "No."

"Some of the stuff that the guy put in there is just so ridiculously false," Drew said. "It's just crazy – like my parents are involved in an unhealthy way? That's not true at all. They said my girlfriend is an influential figure. I don't have a girlfriend. Why would they put up that?"

Drew admitted that having to deal with such reports was something he would rather avoid.

"Yeah, it's pretty frustrating," Drew said. "People nowadays will write anything. They will say anything just to get a story out there."

The sophomore posted 10 points and eight assists in North Carolina's 77-68 victory over Wake Forest on Saturday.
