Another Lady Vol departs
Lady Vols guard Zaay Green is leaving Tennessee, the 6’0 guard announced Wednesday.
Green said her journey “does not end here” and that it was time for her next chapter.
“I would like to thank the fans and everyone else who has supported me through this journey the past two years,” Green said on Instagram. “I’m very grateful for the memories, but due to my actions and decisions and the coaches, it has been best for me to part my ways from the University of Tennessee and figure out what’s best for Zaay Green.”
Green missed the 2019-20 season due to an ACL injury at the start of the season, but in the first two games, she averaged 13 points and 4.5 rebounds.
