Utah basketball: Reserve center Marko Kovacevic leaving the Utes' program
Matt Gade, Deseret News
The University of Utah basketball team is losing its third player this offseason, this time junior center Marko Kovacevic.
“Utah men's basketball junior Marko Kovacevic has left the team to return to his native Serbia,” Ute head coach Larry Krystkowiak announced Monday. “He has decided not to return due to family issues and we wish him and his family the best during this trying time.”
Ahmad Field and Princeton Onwas have also left the Utah program since the 2013-14 season ended.
The 6-foot-11 Kovacevic played in 14 games for the Utes this past season, averaging 1.7 points and 0.7 rebounds per game. He transferred to Utah after averaging 11.7 points and a team-high 7.8 rebounds per game as a freshman in 2011-12 at Western Nebraska Community College.
