Kansas' Merv Lindsay to transfer

LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Kansas forward Merv Lindsay has decided to transfer in search of more playing time.

The freshman played sparingly in 12 games last season, when the Jayhawks won their eighth consecutive Big 12 championship and lost to Kentucky in the national title game. He scored nine points against Howard and two points against Texas Tech.

Jayhawks coach Bill Self said that he met with Lindsay last week to discuss his situation, and the 6-foot-7 Lindsay decided that he would transfer at the end of the spring semester.

Lindsay said in a statement that he has not decided where he will transfer.
