Oregon Ducks Basketball Losing Ben Carter and A.J. Lapray to Transfer

Yesterday we learned that Oregon Ducks Freshman A.J. Lapray was leaving the Oregon Ducks Basketball program to play for Pepperdine. He announced his departure on his Twitter site. It was reported today by both Bleacher Report and the Las Vegas Review Journal that another player was looking at leaving the Ducks. Oregon Sophomore Ben Carter has receieved his scholarship release and will announce his plans of where he is headed soon.

Carter played in 25 games with the Oregon Ducks this season he started five times and averaged 2.5 points and averaged 12.5 minutes per game. The 6 foot 8 inch sophomore is seeking more playing time with another team. That team may in fact be UNLV. He is from Las Vegas so a transfer there would make sense. So, with two players, one having an impact this last season, what will Oregon do?

If I were a fan I would not worry too much about these developments. Oregon, in the Dana Altman era has found a way to get players to fill the holes of those who left the program. It is clear that for the 2014 season Junior Guard Joe Young, along with Dominic Artis and Damyean Dotson will be the faces of the program. With LePray leaving and Young staying the Oregon Ducks scholarship limit was set at 13. Now with the departure of Carter, Oregon has one available scholarship with which to possibly make a ‘splash’ with a commitment for the upcoming season.
