G Lewis adds to Texas departures

The SportsXchange

The offseason exodus from the Texas men's basketball program continued when sophomore guard Julien Lewis was granted a release from his scholarship to transfer to another school, the school announced Tuesday.

Lewis is the third player to depart since the Longhorns completed a 16-18 season and failed to make the NCAA Tournament for the first time in 15 years.

Guard Sheldon McClellan earlier announced his intention to transfer and Myck Kabongo, the team's most valuable player in 2012-13, decided to enter the NBA Draft.

Lewis started 21 games this past season and averaged 11.2 points and 3.3 rebounds.

There was no word on a potential destination for Lewis.

Texas has now lost its top three scorers from last season.
