Utah basketball has lost another player, as Jace Tavita officially requested a transfer today. He cited lack of playing time as the reason.
Tavita's departure marks the fifth player to leave Jim Boylen's program in the last nine months.
Though he lacked the minutes this season, which mostly went to Chris Hines, Tavita was the co-captain on this year's squad.
So hard to spin this as a positive for Boylen, whose team is actually off to an okay start - though they've had a pretty easy schedule and did lose at home to Oral Roberts last Saturday.
We'll see how this impacts the team in the coming weeks.
