SHARE Utah State basketball: Sirju leaves Aggies hoops

LOGAN — Utah State men's basketball player Richard Sirju has left the team due to personal reasons and will not rejoin the Aggies.

"Richie wants to be closer to home with a better opportunity for playing time," said USU head coach Stew Morrill. "He is a quality young man and we wish him all the best."

Sirju, a junior guard from Sunrise, Fla., has played in three games this year for Utah State and had five points and three rebounds in 23 total minutes.

Sirju transferred to Utah State this past fall from Daytona Beach (Fla.) Community College where he earned second all-conference honors as both a freshman and sophomore. During his sophomore season, he averaged 19.5 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.1 assists per game.
