Charlotte's Sirin leaving 49ers basketball program


CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Charlotte sophomore forward Gokhan Sirin is leaving the 49ers' basketball program.

The native of Turkey said in a statement Wednesday that "I need to find a better situation for myself" and will transfer to another school.

Sirin averaged 3.3 points and 1.2 rebounds while shooting 43 percent from 3-point range last season. He averaged just over 11 minutes a game in Charlotte's miserable 10-20 campaign under first-year coach Alan Major.
