“I enjoyed having the opportunity to coach Trevor for the two years he was here,” Grant said. “We certainly wish him the best of luck as he continues to pursue his education and his basketball career.”
Lacey said his decision to leave the Crimson Tide for other opportunities was a, “family decision.”
“This definitely was not an easy decision to make,” Lacey said. “It’s been great at Alabama during my two years. It was tough my freshman year coming off surgery and having to work my way back. I wanted to improve during my sophomore season and I thought I did that.
“I want to thank the coaches and staff, my teammates and all the fans for their support.”
Lacey averaged 11.3 points per game as a sophomore last season, with 3.8 rebounds per game, 3.2 assists per game and 1.4 steals per game.
In the two years that Lacey was with the Crimson Tide, he led the team in the following stats over that span:
– Three-point shots attempted (269)
– Three-point shots made (93)
– Assists (174)
– 2nd in points (646)*
– 2nd in field goals attenpted (535)*
– 2nd in field goals made (214)*
* All behind point guard Trevor Releford.
