University of Nebraska men?s basketball coach Tim Miles announced Tuesday evening that freshman guard Tarin Smith has decided to transfer from the Husker program following the spring semester.

?My family and I have intensely thought about this decision, and we feel that it is best if I transfer at the end of this school year,? Smith said. ?I would like to thank the University of Nebraska and the fans for this opportunity and their support and encouragement throughout the year.?

Smith, a 6-foot-2 guard from Ocean Township, N.J., played in all 31 games as a true freshman this season, averaging 4.5 points and 1.6 rebounds per game. He had a career-high 13 points in a loss to Ohio State on Feb. 26.

?I am disappointed in Tarin?s choice to transfer, but I support him and understand his decision,? Miles said. ?Our entire program will miss him, and we wish him nothing but a successful future.?
