DeQuavious Wagner Transferring From Arkansas Basketball Team

The sophomore point guard is leaving the Razorbacks.

Farewell, DeQuavious Wagner.

Mike Anderson announced on Tuesday that Wagner, Arkansas' sophomore point guard from Alexandria, Louisiana, is leaving the Razorbacks program.

Wagner had a difficult time finding his way on the court this season, playing in just eight games after the outcomes had been determined. He played a little more as a freshman, including hitting a pair of threes against Syracuse and setting a career high of seven point against Alcorn State.

As for what this means for the Arkansas program, it means there is one scholarship immediately available. Richard Davenport reported earlier this week that the Hogs are a finalist for juco forward Shane Henry, who could conceivably play a Coty Clarke-type of role on the team. Also, Texas Tech shooting guard Dusty Hannahs announced his transfer from the Red Raiders. Hannahs is from Little Rock and played on the same AAU team as Rashad Madden. Anderson also may choose to hold the scholarship for the 2015 class.

"Dee has been the model student-athlete over his two years with our program," said Anderson. "We wish him the best of luck in his future on the court and in life. He’ll always be a member of our Razorback family."

"I can’t thank coach Anderson, the entire coaching staff, my teammates and Razorback fans enough for all the support over the last two years," Wagner said. "Things didn’t work out the way I had planned, but I’ve enjoyed my two years at Arkansas and am grateful for the opportunity."

Most importantly, who now has the best name on the Razorback basketball team? Jacorey Williams? Alandise Harris? Perhaps committed point guard Jabril Durham? What say you?
