Mickelson granted release

Posted: Updated:

Sophomore forward Hunter Mickelson of the University of Arkansas basketball program has been granted his release, Razorback head coach Mike Anderson announced on Wednesday.

            Mickelson (6-10, 245), completed his second season with the Razorbacks in 2013 and averaged 5.3 points, 3.6 rebounds and 1.7 blocks per game in his two seasons.  He scored a career high 16 points against Robert Morris last fall and grabbed a career best 13 rebounds against Northwestern State.  Mickelson started 25 of his 64 career games, averaging just under 17 minutes per contest.

            "Hunter is a fine young man who represents the Razorbacks well both on and off the court," Anderson said.  "He has improved as a player during his two years at Arkansas and I wish him the best as he pursues his degree and basketball career elsewhere."

            "This was a difficult decision," Mickelson said.  "I love being a Razorback, but ultimately I need to do what is best for me.  I want to thank the coaching staff, my teammates and all the Razorback fans who showed their support over the past two years."
