MISSOULA -- University of Montana point guard Lexie Nelson has decided to leave the Lady Griz basketball program and will transfer to another school following the spring semester.
Nelson, from Butte, played in all 33 games as a true freshman on Montana's 2010-11 NCAA Tournament team.
Nelson averaged nearly 15 minutes per game and got six starts early in the season prior to Christmas. She finished the season with 31 assists and averaged 3.3 points per game.
"Lexie is a great kid, and we loved having her here this year," UM coach Robin Selvig said. "We wish her the best of luck."
