WACO, Texas - Sophomore center Dragan Sekelja and freshman guard Stargell Love have decided to transfer and will not return for the 2011-12 season, Baylor head coach Scott Drew announced Tuesday.
"It's been a pleasure having Dragan and Stargell part of our basketball program," Drew said. "We wish them the best as they finish out their college careers."
The 7-foot Sekelja spent two seasons at Baylor, totaling 23 games and was a member of the Bears' 2010 Elite Eight team. Sekelja averaged 1.4 points and 0.8 rebounds in 3.4 minutes-per-contest, while shooting 39.3 percent from the floor. In eight games in 2010-11, he averaged 1.4 points and 0.9 rebounds. A native of Zagreb, Croatia, Sekelja was a member of the U16 and U18 Croatia National Teams.
Love, a 6-foot-3 guard, plans to transfer closer to home. He came to Baylor after leading Quality Education Academy (Winston-Salem, N.C.) to back-to-back National Christian Schools Athletic Association (NCSAA) championships in 2009 and 2010. He was rated as the No. 17 point guard and No. 89 player overall in the Class of 2010 by ESPN. He averaged 2.2 points, 1.4 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 12.0 minutes in 24 games, making one start. He shot 36.1 percent from the floor and 66.7 percent from the free throw line.
