PULLMAN, Wash. - Sophomore Michael Harthun and freshmen John Allen and Anthony Brown have been granted their releases from the Washington State University men's basketball team and will transfer at the end of the semester, head coach Ken Bone announced Tuesday.
"We support the decisions made by Mike, John and Anthony and wish them nothing but good things," Bone said. "I've enjoyed coaching these three young men over the last year and appreciate the contributions they've made to the program."
