BOZEMAN -- Montana State officials say forward Shawn Reid is transferring from the school.
Reid, a sophomore from Post Falls, tells the Bozeman Daily Chronicle he asked for and was granted his release from the program. He will leave at the end of the spring semester.
Reid says neither his role nor the team's 23-35 record over the past two seasons were primary factors in his decision. He averaged 10.6 points and 3.3 rebounds per game in earning honorable mention all-Big Sky Conference honors this winter.
He says the decision was "more just based on my happiness." He says he's looking for another school where he can play basketball.
