TULSA, Oklahoma - The University of Tulsa men's basketball team has picked up a new transfer.

On Tuesday evening, Charlotte men’s basketball player Curran Scott posted a statement to Twitter that read:

“I would like to thank Coach Price and his staff for giving me the opportunity to play for Charlotte this year. I would also like to thank the fans here in Charlotte for supporting us night in and night out. This was the start of something very special this year. I enjoyed growing with this team and gaining a second family. The experiences I had this past year will never be forgotten.  I want to thank everyone who invested their time and efforts into not only my basketball career but me as a person during my time here. This has not been an easy decision for me whatsoever. At this point in time, my family and I think it would be best for me to leave Charlotte and pursue an opportunity closer to home at the University of Tulsa. Excited to be a part of the Tulsa basketball family and ready for [what] the future holds. Thank you and God bless.”

The Edmond Memorial alumni shot 43 percent from three-point range as a freshman.
