Freshman center Jameson Keefe announded that he is leaving the La Salle University men's basketball team Thursday.

The 7-foot-4, Troy, NY native cited a desire to be closer to home and will leave the university after he completes the fall semester.

"I just want to be closer to home," Keefe said.

La Salle had planned to redshirt Keefe for the upcoming season.

"Jameson has worked hard in his classes and with his conditioning," Explorers coach John Giannini said. "However, he is missing home. He wants to go to school in the Troy area next semester and possibly beyond. We support him in doing what makes him happy."
