Guard Darius Thompson third to leave Virginia this week

Men's College Basketball, Virginia Cavaliers

Virginia coach Tony Bennett says guard Darius Thompson is transferring, making him the third player to leave the Cavaliers in two days.

Bennett made the announcement Thursday, one day after announcing that guard Marial Shayok and forward Jarred Reuter are leaving.

Thompson transferred to Virginia after spending his freshman season at Tennessee. He played for the Cavaliers for two years and started in 15 of his 33 appearances this year. He averaged 6.2 points in 20.8 minutes per game this season, and 5.2 points over 70 career games at Virginia.

Bennett says Thompson will transfer after graduating, making him eligible to play immediately wherever he lands.

The three departures leave Virginia with just six players on the roster who received significant playing time this season.
