Southern Miss guard Lashay Page cleared to transfer

University of Southern Mississippi senior guard Lashay Page will not be with the Golden Eagles come the start of the 2012-2013 season. Head Men's Basketball Coach Donnie Tyndall confirmed reports that Page was granted a release from his scholarship and plans to transfer sometime in the next few months.

Tyndall explained that Page feels a need to be closer to his home of Dillon, S.C., and closer to his father and daughter. Another incident that may have played a significant role in Page's decision was the passing of his mother, Cathy, who died at the age of 38 just before the start of the team's Feb. 22 matchup at the University of Texas-El Paso.

Reports are that Tyndall tried to convince Page to reconsider. Page was second on the team in scoring last season, scoring 11.4 points and grabbing 3.4 rebounds a game.
