Trace Young leaving Wyoming basketball program

April 1, 2019

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming basketball coach Allen Edwards says freshman guard Trace Young is leaving the Cowboy basketball program.

In a statement, Edwards says Young will be pursuing “other opportunities in collegiate basketball.”

Other than thanking Young for his time at Wyoming and wishing him success in the future, Edwards declined further comment.

Young appeared in 20 games this season for the Pokes, averaging 6.8 points and 3.4 rebounds per game in 13 starts.

Young’s departure is another blow to a Wyoming team that won just eight games this past season after several players suffered injuries, another left the team midseason and another was suspended.
