Shane Rector will depart the Tiger program.
May 16, 2014
Columbia, Mo. - Mizzou Basketball announced that freshman guard Shane Rector will transfer out of the program. The Bronx, N.Y., native played in 23 games last season, averaging 0.5 points and 0.3 rebounds per game.
"I understand Shane's desire for extended playing time and will do whatever I can to assist him in this process," Head Coach Kim Anderson said. "I certainly want to thank Shane for his time at Missouri and want to wish him and his family all the best."
One of Rector's top games came in the SEC Tournament win over Texas A&M. He recorded three steals, hit 3-of-4 free throws and grabbed two rebounds in the second overtime to help the Tigers to the 91-83 victory.
"I appreciate Coach Anderson and the administration at Missouri for supporting me as I look for a new opportunity," Rector said. "This was a difficult decision because I have made some great friends during my time here. Mizzou is a great University with great people. This was just a personal decision that my family and I felt was in my best interest."
