LAWRENCE, Kan. — Freshman guard Sophronia Sallard has decided to end her career at KU for personal reasons, University of Kansas women’s basketball coach Bonnie Henrickson announced Friday. Sallard intends to transfer but has yet to decide on her next school.

“We respect Sophronia’s decision and wish her the best,” Henrickson said.

Sallard averaged 1.8 points and 1.3 rebounds in 15 games for Kansas in 2005-06. The Syracuse, N.Y., native shot 34.2 percent from the field and added 14 assists, one block and three steals.

“I appreciate the opportunity I was given at Kansas and wish the program the best,” Sallard said. “At this point I feel like I’m making a decision that is best for me.”
