    USC has granted freshman Alexis Moore and sophomore Curtis Washington permission to contact other institutions about the possibility of transfering, it was announced today (March 21) by head men's basketball coach Kevin O'Neill.

    "We wish Alexis and Curtis nothing but the best," said O'Neill. "We appreciate their contributions and wish them every bit of success in the future."

    Moore averaged 4.3 points and 2.0 rebounds while playing in all 32 games. Moore's 18 starts were tied for the fourth-most on the team and his 49 assists were the third-most among Trojans. Moore had a season-best 18 points on Dec. 17 vs. Georgia and scored in double figures five times during the season.

    Washington missed the entire 2011-12 season after having surgery in August to repair a torn left labrum. He played in three games totaling 11 minutes for the Trojans as a freshman, but did not take a shot.

    USC does not lose any scholarship players to graduation this season and adds transfer forwards Ari Stewart and Eric Wise who will be eligible next season after practicing with the team this season. Also, USC's announced recruiting class includes junior college guard J.T. Terrell and Serbian forward Strahinja Gavrilovic.
