SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) - Little-used guard Ty Proffitt has
withdrawn from Notre Dame and plans to transfer to another school.
The 6-foot-4 sophomore from London, Ky., played only 22 minutes
in eight games last season, averaging 1 point and 0.4 rebounds. He
made the decision after the Irish returned from a 13-day trip to
Ireland that included six games against international competition.
Proffitt wasn't expected to see much playing time this coming
season behind Kyle McAlarney, Tory Jackson and Jonathan Peoples.
The Irish also add transfer guard Ben Hansbrough in 2009-10.
Notre Dame coach Mike Brey said he supported Proffitt's decision
