Exodus from the Pac-10 continues

By Diamond Leung

The Pac-10 used to lose players to the NBA, but this offseason, they're simply leaving for other schools.

Freshman forward Clarence Trent Wednesday became the latest player to bolt and find a new home elsewhere, transferring from Washington across town to play for former Huskies assistant Cameron Dollar, now the head coach at Seattle.

Freshman guard Demetrius Walker verbally committed Tuesday to transfer to New Mexico after cutting his stay at Arizona State short and visiting Albuquerque over the weekend.

The 6-foot-5 Trent, who earlier this month also left the football team, and sophomore guard Elston Turner are leaving a Sweet 16 team. Walker nearly got to the NCAA tournament with the Sun Devils, who finished second in the conference's regular season standings.

But they didn't receive as much playing time as they wanted.

"The reality is you have schools that play eight or nine guys," Dollar explained. "Something has to give."

Arizona: D.J. Shumpert

Arizona State: Demetrius Walker, Taylor Rohde, Brandon Thompson
