COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) _ Little-used Missouri sophomore forward Matt Rowan has left the team and intends to transfer, coach Quin Snyder said Tuesday.

Snyder said the 6-foot-7 Rowan, who did not play in either of the Tigers' first two games, will be released from his scholarship commitment at the end of the fall semester. Rowan averaged 0.8 points and 1.4 rebounds in 4.9 minutes, playing in 17 games last season.

``We wish Matt the very best,'' said Snyder, in his first year as a head coach. ``He's made a personal decision that he wants to be in a program where he'll be able to make more of a contribution.''
