Transfer from Minnesota out for personal reasons

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Moe Hargrow, who transferred from Minnesota to Arkansas during the 2002-03 season, has been released from his basketball scholarship by his new school.

Razorbacks coach Stan Heath issued a statement Friday concerning
Hargrow, who would have been eligible to play halfway through the
upcoming season.

Heath said Hargrow "is facing several challenges in his life
that are non-basketball-related" so the university chose to
release him. He gave no further explanation.

"We feel his being at home will better help him deal with his
challenges. Neither Moe nor his mother have requested this. We are
doing this in order to give them and the University of Minnesota a
chance to exchange dialogue," Heath said.

Minnesota athletic officials said his release was received
Friday but coaches had not yet scheduled any discussions with the
guard who is a native of the Twin Cities.

Hargrow transferred to Arkansas in January after averaging 31
minutes and 11.4 points for the Golden Gophers in the first half of
his junior season.
