BOWLING GREEN - Steven Wright, who quit the Bowling Green State University men's basketball team in late February, will transfer to play next year for Northern Kentucky, a Division II school.
Wright will graduate from BGSU in August and move to Kentucky, where he will have one year of eligibility remaining.
"I love the Northern Kentucky coaching staff and the players," Wright said. "We have a 6-11 player who transferred from Dayton, James Cripe, who I'm excited to play with. Also, I like their ball-screen offense."
Wright, a 6-3 guard from Dayton, averaged 11.4 points and 3.5 assists in 20 games for the Falcons last season. He left the team with four games to play.
"I want to thank coach [Dan] Dakich and his staff for teaching me the aspects of working hard on the basketball court, and in the classroom," Wright said.
