EUGENE, Ore. ó Junior guard Chamberlain Oguchi announced Friday that he will transfer from the University of Oregon to a yet-to-be determined college. The University has granted his request for release.

"It is unfortunate when players transfer from your program, but at the same time, we recognize that Champ wants to find an opportunity that is better suited for him and his career goals and we understand that," said Kent. "Champ has been an important part of what we’ve accomplished here the last three years and we wish him the utmost success in the future."

Oguchi played in 32 games in 2006-07, starting 10. He averaged 4.8 points per game and was one of the better free throw shooters on the team at 84.6 percent. He scored a season-high 25 points in Oregon’s 85-42 win over UC Irvine. Had then grabbed six rebounds in the 57-50 upset win at No. 18 Georgetown before suffering a severely sprained left ankle during the first half that caused him to miss the next five games.

For his three-year career, Oguchi scored 571 points in 86 games, averaging 6.6 per game. He made 115 three-pointers and shot 31.9 percent from beyond the arc.
