EUGENE, Ore. - The University of Oregon athletic department said basketball forward Kavell Bigby-Williams has requested and been granted a release for transfer.

"This does not mean that he will transfer, only that he has permission to explore the opportunity," the school said in a statement. "One of the core elements of our program is that we encourage players to do what they feel is in their best interest, and if Kavell feels he needs to explore other opportunities, we would certainly support that."

Coach Dana Altman is away recruiting this week. The University said Altman will meet with Bigby-Williams on Monday.
