College Basketball: It’s official: Spears going to Charlotte

Associated Press
CHARLOTTE ó Boston College forward Shamari Spears is transferring to Charlotte after finishing as the Eagles’ third-leading scorer last season.
A Charlotte spokesman said Tuesday that Spears wanted to be closer to his home in Salisbury because of an undisclosed family medical issue.
Spears will have two years of eligibility remaining. Normally transfers have to sit out a season, but it’s possible Charlotte will appeal to the NCAA for a waiver to allow Spears to play next season because of his family situation.
Spears, who stands 6-foot-6, averaged 9.6 points and 6.1 rebounds for the Eagles and played nearly 27 minutes a game last season. He started 17 games, reaching double figures in scoring 15 times with four double-doubles.
Spears left Salisbury after a sophomore season that saw him have a 54-point game. He went to Blair Academy before joining another Salisbury native, Tyrese Rice, at Boston College.
