Billikens G Salecich transferring to Missouri So

Saint Louis guard Christian Salecich, a sophomore from Australia, is transferring to Missouri Southern.

The school previously had granted a release for Salecich, who made 31 starts his freshman year but only four last season. Salecich averaged 6.4 points and 2.3 rebounds as a freshman and 2.3 points last season.

Saint Louis coach Rick Majerus said Tuesday he believes Salecich will play a more meaningful role at Missouri Southern, an NCAA Division II school.
