Guard decides to leave IU

The Indiana Hoosiers lost another basketball player – only this one wasn’t as expected as the other two.

Sophomore guard Remy Abell will be leaving IU, the university announced late Friday.

He is the third player off the Big Ten regular-season champion Indiana team to announce he is leaving. Victor Olidipo and Cody Zeller announced this week that they will be leaving Indiana for the NBA.

Abell averaged 3.5 points in 10.7 minutes during his career.

“Remy has been an outstanding citizen and a solid player for us the past two years,” Indiana coach Tom Crean said in a statement. “He indicated to us that he would like to look to go to a program that has a different style of play and one where he can get more playing time.”

Said Abell: “Being at Indiana has been the best two years of my life. I love the school, the program, the fans and I want to thank everyone for their support. The coaching staff has been great to me and I couldn’t ask to have had better teammates while I was here. I am going to miss everyone, but I just feel at this time a fresh start and new opportunities are what is best in following god’s plan for me .”
