Cincinnati, OH (Sports Network) – Freshman Xavier guard Churchill Odia has
decided to transfer, head men’s basketball coach Sean Miller said Wednesday.

“Churchill Odia has asked for his release,” Miller said in a statement. “He
has decided to transfer and pursue other opportunities. We wish Churchill the
best with his future as a student-athlete.”

Odia, a native of Nigeria, averaged 8.8 minutes in 29 games for the Musketeers
this past season, including 25 starts. He played just four minutes combined in
Xavier’s final six games.
