Explorers' Lopez to transfer

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."

Said Lopez, in a st atement: "I like La Salle and our team very much but for personal reasons I am excited about getting a fresh start. I am making a big change but it will help me in many ways. This is more than a basketball or school decision and Coach G has been very understanding."
