Doolin leaves San Francisco for personal reasons

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Senior point guard Cody Doolin has left San Francisco's basketball team for personal reasons.

The university said Tuesday that Doolin will remain enrolled in school and is scheduled to receive his degree in finance in the spring.

Doolin's departure is a major blow for a Dons team that already had struggled to compete in the West Coast Conference. He averaged 13 points and seven assists in his first four games this season, including a career-high 33 points in a 92-90 loss to Nevada on Nov. 15.

Doolin ends his career ranked second in school history with 451 assists.

USF coach Rex Walters says he respects Doolin's decision to leave the team so he can ''devote more time to other matters in his life that will require his attention.''
