PITTSBURGH (AP) — Freshman forward Corey Manigault and sophomore guard Crisshawn Clark are transferring from Pittsburgh.

The players announced the move shortly after the Panthers finished a disappointing 16-17 season in coach Kevin Stallings’ first year. Manigault appeared in 18 games, averaging less than a point and a rebound per contest.

Clark did not appear in a game for the Panthers after transferring from Canada College. Clark had surgery in December to repair ligament and meniscus damage in his left knee.

The transfers are the latest in a mass exodus at Pitt. The Panthers will lose four players to graduation, and freshman guard Justice Kithcart was dismissed for a violation of team rules this month.
