Reserve guards Leland Green and Brandon Thomas are leaving the UH basketball team.
Both players requested — and received — releases from their scholarships, then entered the NCAA portal, a list of available transfer players that is circulated to all NCAA programs.
Green played in 57 games, starting 36, in his first two UH seasons. But he underwent shoulder surgery at the end of the 2017-2018 season. This recently completed season, he averaged 8.3 minutes and 2.6 points in 27 games.
In his second season after transferring from a junior college, Thomas averaged 6.1 minutes and 1.2 points in 13 games.
The Rainbow Warriors now have four available scholarships to fill the 2019 recruiting class.
