MADISON, Wis. - Mickey Perry, a redshirt freshman guard on the University of Wisconsin men's basketball team, has requested and been granted his official release from the University of Wisconsin, head coach Bo Ryan announced Friday.

"Mickey has decided to move on to another university and seek out other opportunities to further his basketball and educational experience," Ryan said. "He is a fine young man who I wish nothing but the best for in the future."

"I want to thank the University of Wisconsin, along with my teammates and coaches for all their support during my time here," Perry said. "Wisconsin gave me a chance to play at an extremely high level and be a part of something special and I'm grateful for that. The Badger basketball program has developed into a great program with a lot of great players. I've decided to look for an opportunity where I can help a team by contributing more on the floor during games. I also want to thank the fans at the University of Wisconsin for all the support they have provided myself and my teammates. I wish Wisconsin all the best in the future and hopefully they can continue the special season that has started here."
