Angel Garcia leaving Memphis for Spain
Coach Josh Pastner announced Garcia's plans Sunday night. The 6-foot-11 Garcia will complete his final exams first.
Garcia says this is a very difficult decision with Memphis being his home the past three years. But Garcia said in a statement through the school that he got an offer to help his family financially that he couldn't refuse.
He played in all eight games, averaging 6.1 points and 3.0 rebounds.
Pastner says they support Garcia's decision fully to play professionally in Spain.
