Virginia men’s head basketball coach Tony Bennett announced on Tuesday that freshman forward Will Regan (Williamsville, N.Y.) is leaving the Cavaliers’ program.
“We wish Will the best,” Bennett said. “He expressed a desire to be closer to home and find a situation that he felt suited him better. Transfers are an increasing part of college basketball today and I hope things work out well for Will. We appreciate his contributions to our program.”
The 6-8 Regan played in 20 games for the Cavaliers during the 2010-11 season. He scored 25 points and had 18 rebounds. He was named to the 2011 All-Atlantic Coast Conference Academic Men’s Basketball Team.
“I would like to thank Coach Bennett and the entire coaching staff for the opportunity to be involved in a program like this one,” Regan said. “I know the future is bright for Virginia Basketball and that makes this a difficult decision for me. I want to enjoy achieving my basketball and academic goals and believe I will be better able to do that in another situation. I appreciate all of the support I’ve received at Virginia and wish my teammates the best in the years ahead.”
Regan will finish the semester at Virginia.
