La Salle redshirt freshman Matt Lopez has been granted a release from his scholarship and plans to transfer.
Lopez, a 7-foot, 235-pounder from Washington Township High, appeared in nine games this season.
"Matt and I have a great relationship and we have talked openly about many things. He specifically was interested in going to a new area," Explorers coach Dr. John Giannini said in a statement. "I totally support Matt's reasons for taking a new path. He is a great person, a good student and helped our team a lot. He leaves La Salle in a very positive way."
