Oregon point guard Malcolm Armstead decides to transfer

Oregon junior guard Malcolm Armstead is transferring with a year of college eligibility remaining. He hopes to play closer to his home in Alabama.
He’d have to sit out next season if he transfers to a Division I school.
Armstead played at Chipola Junior College in Florida before joining Oregon in 2009. In two years, he ranks third on the UO’s all-time steals list and ninth in assists.
The Ducks return seven scholarship players. They have four incoming freshman and two transfers giving them the NCAA limit of 13.
Freshman Johnathan Loyd split time at point guard this season with Armstead. He’ll likely compete with incoming freshman Bruce Barron for the starting job.
MONDAY MORNING LINKS:
— It’s a revolving door at Utah. Players are leaving while others may be coming back.
— New Utes coach coach Larry Krystkowiak added Colorado State assistant DeMarlo Slocum to his staff.
— UCLA needs a place to play next season while historic Pauley Pavilion undergoes a renovation. The Bruins considered several options before settling on the Los Angeles Sports Arena as its new temporary home. Strangely enough the building is also the former digs of their crosstown rival USC. The Trojans played there from 1959 to 2006 before moving into the Galen Center. UCLA will play 14 home games at the Sports Arena and four at the Honda Center in Anheim, Calif.
