Villanova guard and top 3-point shooter Malcolm Grant received a release from his scholarship on Friday and will pursue a transfer to another school. Grant averaged 5.6 points for the Wildcats this season in 29 games. He was 34-for-73 (46 percent) from 3-point range to lead the Wildcats.

"He has been exemplary as a student and a teammate at Villanova," Wildcats coach Jay Wright said. "However, he deserves starter's minutes. We are grateful for all that Malcolm has given to Villanova and support him in this decision."
