PROVO — BYU sophomore guard Cory Calvert is leaving the program one month into the basketball season, BYU head coach Dave Rose announced Monday morning.
Calvert has appeared sparingly since the season began Nov. 13 against Utah Valley University. The Parker, Colorado, native has five points on 2-of-8 shooting and five rebounds in 26 total minutes, most of which came in BYU's 97-56 win over Adams State Nov. 20. He had logged in just two minutes of playing time since that game.
“We’re grateful for Cory’s hard work and dedication,” Rose said, in a news release. “We wish him the very best with the rest of his collegiate career.”
Calvert joined the program for the 2012-13 season and played in 28 games, averaging 1.9 points, 0.9 rebounds and 0.7 assists. He then left to serve and LDS Church mission before returning for this season and will seek a transfer for his remaining collegiate eligibility.
“I’m grateful for the support from my coaches, teammates and our fans," Calvert added. "I wish BYU the best of luck the rest of this season.”
