Khari Price to transfer from UD

DAYTON, Ohio – University of Dayton men’s basketball coach Archie Miller has announced that sophomore guard Khari Price will be granted his release and transfer in order to complete his college career closer to his hometown of Slidell, La.   Price leaves Dayton with two seasons of eligibility remaining.

Price started all 37 games for the Flyers in 2013-14, averaging 6.2 points and 1.8 assists in 22.4 minutes a game. He shot .396 (65-164) from the field, .390 (46-118) from 3-pt. range, and .833 (53-60) from the line last year. He averaged 2.8 points and 1.4 assists as a freshman.

“Today we want to wish Khari Price the best of luck on his decision to transfer and be closer to home and his family,” Miller said. “This was a long and thoughtful process he took to reach this point and after numerous conversations with he and his family, ultimately it is the best decision for him to get closer to home.”

“I’m proud of Khari for how he represented us the last two years on and off the floor. He is a great kid and his contributions helped us grow,” Miller added. “He will be successful wherever he chooses and we wish him the best of luck.”

“This was a hard decision,” Price said. “Dayton is a great place and as much as I enjoyed being at UD, it was harder and harder to be away from my family. I want to thank the coaches for making me a better player and wish my teammates good luck.”

Dayton finished 2013-14 ranked 18th in the final USA Today Coaches Poll. UD’s 26 wins were the third-most in school history. The Flyers return the bulk of UD’s “True Team” 11-man rotation for next year. That includes leading scorer Jordan Sibert (12.2 ppg) at guard and NCAA All-Region selection Dyshawn Pierre (11.2 ppg) at forward. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
