WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) — Wake Forest says backup guard Chase Fischer is transferring out.

Coach Jeff Bzdelik said Thursday that Fischer will leave school after the semester ends.

Fischer started three of 31 games during his sophomore season and averaged 4.5 points in roughly 14 minutes per game.

He was one of only three available non-freshmen on scholarship for the Demon Deacons (13-18).

Fischer says it's in his best interests to continue his career elsewhere.
