James Watson had quite a life story to tell during his time at Washington State, and unfortunately for the freshman, his basketball career will now be taking a detour because of academics.

Watson, a 6-foot-7 forward who appeared in 29 of the Cougars' 31 games this season, was declared academically ineligible for the fall semester and will transfer to a junior college rather than sit out during that time.

"We wish James nothing but the best," Wazzu coach Ken Bone said in a statement.

New Mexico loses an unsurprising transfer

New Mexico has announced that Nate Garth will transfer after the sophomore guard asked for and received his scholarship release Thursday.

Attrition was expected since the Lobos, with Arizona State transfer Demetrius Walker set to arrive, had run out of scholarships. If Darington Hobson were to withdraw from the NBA draft, the Mountain West champs could very well see another player leave the program.

Garth, meanwhile, is expected to transfer closer to home in California.

Arizona: D.J. Shumpert

Boise State: Tyler Young
