TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) -- Arizona State's Trent Lockett, the team's leading scorer last season, says he will transfer to Marquette for his senior season to be closer to his mother, who has been diagnosed with cancer.
Lockett, whose mother lives in Minnesota, already has earned a bachelor's degree in business communication from Arizona State.
In a statement released by Arizona State, Lockett thanked everyone involved in his career at the school and said the transfer was the hardest decision he's had to make. He said that while his decision is based on his mother's health, he also wanted to make a good basketball decision and Marquette is a great place to end his career.
