Found November 25, 2012 on Fox Sports West:
LOS ANGELES Junior guard Tyler Lamb has elected to leave the UCLA mens basketball program and has been granted his release, effective immediately. Lamb will transfer at the conclusion of the fall quarter and conclude his college career at another school. Lamb missed four weeks of practice prior to UCLAs 2012-13 season opener after having undergone arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Oct. 9. The 6-foot-5 guard from Covina, Calif., returned to action against Indiana State on Nov. 9 and scored four points in 14 minutes. He sat out the teams next two games with a swollen left knee and did not play in UCLAs two games of the championship round of the Progressive Legends Classic in Brooklyn, N.Y. on Nov. 19-20. "We are very sad to see Tyler leave our program, Howland said. He is a great kid, and we have really enjoyed having him play for UCLA. We fully support his decision, and we wish him all the best in the future. Lamb entered his junior season having averaged 5.8 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game through 67 contests. Lamb had played in all 33 games (32 starts) last season as a sophomore. He played in all 34 games (two starts) as a freshman in 2010-11. I would like to thank the University, Coach Howland and his staff for the unparalleled opportunity to have been a part of UCLAs program, Lamb said in a statement. However, I believe that it is in my best interest to find a new destination where I can continue to grow, both as a person and as a basketball player. I am eternally grateful to my coaches and teammates for everything they have given me, and I wish them the best going forward. I plan on enrolling in a new educational institution by next semester, and I have not yet determined my schools of interest.
