Huber leaves Knights, will seek transfer

Freshman forward Christine Huber has left the Rutgers women's basketball team, the latest loss for the Scarlet Knights (9-6).

Huber played in 11 games in the first semester, and the 6-foot-4 forward/center averaged 0.6 points in 4.8 minutes per game.

"I wish Christine much success," coach C. Vivian Stringer said in a release. "We are very sorry to see Chris leave the program and she will always be considered part of our Rutgers family. We wish her the best of luck in whatever path she chooses to pursue."

Last year's leading scorer Epiphanny Prince decided to skip her senior season and play this season professionally in Europe. She plans to enter the 2010 WNBA draft.

In April, 6-1 forward Brooklyn Pope transferred from Rutgers to Baylor. She had been one of the top recruits in the country, but averaged just 2.1 points, 2.0 rebounds and 6.0 minutes for the Scarlet Knights in the 2008-09 season.
