Aaron Brown will leave both Temple and the Owls basketball program at the end of the spring semester.
The sophomore shooting guard informed coach Fran Dunphy of his decision Saturday morning. The St. Benedict's Prep (N.J.) product was granted his release.
"I felt like I haven't been given the opportunity," said Brown, who averaged 6.4 points and 14.6 minutes this past season. "And I think that it is just time to move on. You know I worked hard. . . . I did everything they asked, a hard worker."
The 6-foot-5 Hackensack, N.J., resident ranked second on the team in three-point shooting at 41.5 percent.
