The Missouri basketball team announced two freshman guards will not return to the team next season.

Negus Webster-Chan and Dominique Bull will both transfer in order to find more playing time and play closer to home, according to a statement released by Mizzou this afternoon.

â??Dominique and Negus were great representatives of our program and I want to thank them for their contributions both on and off the basketball court,â?? Missouri coach Frank Haith said. â??We will certainly do anything we can to help them as they begin the recruiting process, and wish them nothing but the best moving forward.â??

Webster-Chan appeared in 32 games and made six starts. He averaged 2.5 points and 2.0 rebounds per game. Bull saw action in just nine games, scoring a total of five points.
