Camara won't transfer from UK




The Associated Press

        LEXINGTON, Ky. — Kentucky coach Tubby Smith said Saturday that junior forward Jules Camara has decided to stay at Kentucky.

        Camara, arrested last weekend on a drunken driving charge, pleaded innocent Friday. Steve Smith, his former high school coach at Oak Hill Academy, had said earlier in the week that Camara was leaning toward transferring.

        But the university issued a statement Saturday night, saying Tubby Smith hoped to end speculation surrounding Camara.

        “I have spoken with Jules on numerous occasions over the past week — as has my staff and our athletics director, Larry Ivy — and Jules has decided to remain a Kentucky Wildcat,” Smith said. “We are very pleased with his decision and look forward to him rejoining our team in the future.”

        Kentucky's alcohol policy mandates that Camara, a junior, be suspended indefinitely pending the outcome of his legal proceedings.
