Knight was a starter as a true freshman for the Huskies last season, lining up next to sophomore point guard Curtis Allen. His first game as a Dawg was his best as he poured in 23 points in the opening game at the Top of the World Classic in Alaska against the host Alaska-Fairbanks.
His Pac-10 high was a 19-point outburst against Arizona State during a home game in Bank of America Arena.
One of the main concerns of the Husky team last year, and one of the factors that may have contributed to Bob Bender's ouster as head coach, was team chemistry. It is believed that Knight's request to leave the program is directly related to that issue. There are definite cliques on the current team, something that new head coach Lorenzo Romar will need to address immediately. There are some definite personality clashes present.
Knight had not talked with Romar about the situation as of 7:00 this evening, so it is far from a done deal. It is not a transfer, but a request to transfer. Expect a meeting as soon as tomorrow between coach and player to resolve this one way or the other.
Knight averaged 7.1 points per game and 2.6 rebounds per contest. He started 19 of the Huskies 29 games last year. Washington was able to talk Knight into staying home last year to play hoops despite an offer from the Kansas Jayhawks.
