Stacey Poole to transfer from UK



Sophomore guard Stacey Poole, a former ESPNU 100 recruit who signed to play at UK before last season, has decided to transfer from the basketball program, head coach John Calipari announced on his website Monday.

According to Calipari, “Stacey and his family felt it is in his best interest to play somewhere else and I fully respect the family and their decision.”

Calipari did not announce where Poole was headed, saying, ” I want to wish Stacey nothing but the best in whatever and wherever he chooses to go.”

In his one-year career at UK, Poole averaged 0.3 points, 0.5 rebounds and one assist per game in 16 games played.
