Middle Tennessee men's basketball head coach Kermit Davis and point guard Quavius Copeland have reached a mutual agreement that will see the two-year member of the Blue Raiders play out the final season of his college career for another team, Davis announced Friday.

The Greenville, S.C., native played in 65 games and earned eight starts along the way in his two years in Murfreesboro. Copeland averaged three points per game while shooting over 42 percent from the field in his time at MT.

Copeland was a key player off the bench for the Raiders in each of the last two postseason runs as Middle Tennessee won back-to-back Conference USA Championships and NCAA Tournament first round games.

"Qua and I made a mutual decision that we thought it was best for him in his senior season to go to a program where he can play some major minutes," Davis said. "He was a big part of the last two seasons with us and our two great postseason runs and NCAA Tournament wins."

"We all wish him the very best and believe he will do really well in his final season of college basketball."
