MurraySports

Murray State head coach Matt McMahon released the following statement today regarding the Racers' Byron Hawkins.

"Byron Hawkins will be granted his release to explore graduate transfer opportunities this spring.  We are thankful for his contributions to our program and to our 2018 OVC championship team.  I respect and support his desire to play the point guard position at his next school and we wish him the very best moving forward.  I look forward to congratulating Byron and his family at his May 12 graduation from our great university."

This opens up a scholarship that MSU might choose to use on a junior college post player or a high-major transfer.
