UL men's basketball top scorer Cedric Russell enters transfer portal
UL guard Cedric Russell entered the transfer portal Wednesday and became the fifth Ragin’ Cajun to enter the portal this year.
Wilson has already signed with Texas Tech.
Russell, a senior and first-team All-Sun Belt Conference selection, averaged 17.2 points and shot 40% from the 3-point line last season.
Despite his name being in the portal, Russell has not officially left the program or committed to a new school.
Russell averaged double figures the last two seasons and started at least 25 games in three of his four years. He was granted an extra year of eligibility by the NCAA because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
UL went 17-9 and 10-7 in conference play during the shortened 2020-21 campaign.
