FAYETTEVILLE – Freshman post player Whitney Zachariason has left the University of Arkansas women’s basketball team effective immediately.
The 6-1 product of North Little Rock, Ark., and Central Arkansas Christian informed the coaching staff of her decision late yesterday.
“We are disappointed that Whitney decided to leave our program,” Lady Razorback head coach Tom Collen said. “The timing of her decision is unfortunate for both her and the team. Whitney is a great kid and we wish her nothing but the best in her search for another program that best suits her needs.”
Zachariason participated in two of Arkansas’ three preseason games, averaging 5 ppg and 3.5 rpg.
The Lady Razorbacks host Lipscomb on Sunday afternoon, Nov. 11, at 2 p.m. at Bud Walton Arena. The game is the regular season opener for Arkansas.
