The 6-2 forward, who was chosen the state's high school player of the year as well as a McDonald's All-American as a senior at Oregon City High School in 2004, was one of seven returning letterwinners that were expected to return for the Ducks from last year's team that posted a 14-15 record.
"I am choosing to leave the Oregon women's basketball program at this time due to irreconcilable differences between myself and the head coach," Forristall said. "I wish to thank all my supporters, specifically my teammates and the community.
"I realize the timing of this decision may not be ideal but feel this is a decision that could not be delayed. I will make decisions regarding my future at a later date."
The two-year Oregon letterwinner averaged 4.3 points and 2.7 rebounds in 54 games over her past two seasons, including 16 starting assignments. Forristall posted her best statistical numbers as a freshman during the 2004-05 campaign, averaging 5.5 points and 3.2 rebounds per game in addition to finishing second on the team in free throw percentage (.774) and tying for third in field goal accuracy (.444).
"We're disappointed with the decision that Kristen has made, particularly with the timing of this decision," Smith said. "As far as myself and my coaching staff are concerned, we felt that any perceived differences were resolvable."
Forristall said she will remain in school at Oregon through the conclusion of the fall term.
