Will Regan Announces Decision to Leave the Virginia Basketball Program

A little bit of attrition coming your way, Virginia basketball fans. According to a release by Virginia Athletics today, freshman forward Will Regan has decided to leave the program, but will finish this semester at Virginia.

"We wish Will the best," Bennett said in the released statement. "He expressed a desire to be closer to home and find a situation that he felt suited him better. Transfers are an increasing part of college basketball today and I hope things work out well for Will. We appreciate his contributions to our program."

The 6'8", 220 pound freshman played in 20 games this season, averaging 6.6 minutes, 1.3 points and 0.9 rebounds. He was also named to the Academic All-ACC Team.

"I would like to thank Coach Bennett and the entire coaching staff for the opportunity to be involved in a program like this one," Regan said in the same statement. "I know the future is bright for Virginia Basketball and that makes this a difficult decision for me. I want to enjoy achieving my basketball and academic goals and believe I will be better able to do that in another situation. I appreciate all of the support I've received at Virginia and wish my teammates the best in the years ahead."

It's unclear if Regan has anywhere specific in mind in terms of transferring. As far as the impact on the Virginia team goes, Regan played four games for 10 or more minutes, including against Washington and against Norfolk State. His most significant games were back-to-back, logging in 18 minutes against Iowa State (7 points, 2 rebounds) and 19 against LSU (4 points, 4 rebounds). He did not play in the final five games of the Cavaliers' season, and only played in four of the final 14.
