PHILADELPHIA - Guard Abdulai Jalloh has requested and been granted his release from Saint Joseph's to transfer to another institution.
"It has always been the trademark of our program to do what's best for each individual, and we granted his request," said coach Phil Martelli.
Jalloh, who just completed his sophomore year, led the Hawks in scoring (15.5 ppg) and rebounding (5.5). He shot 37.5 percent from the field and 34.2 percent from 3-point range, but converted 84 percent from the foul line. He earned Atlantic 10 All-Conference Second Team honors in 2006.
