RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Two of North Carolina State's reserves say they are transferring.

Wolfpack coach Sidney Lowe said Tuesday night that forward Josh Davis and guard Julius Mays were leaving the program in search of better opportunities elsewhere.

Davis played 31 games during his freshman season but did not play in the final five games of the season. He averaged nearly 3 points and 2 rebounds in roughly 10 minutes per game.

Mays primarily was the backup to Javier Gonzalez at point guard, but made six starts during two seasons. He averaged 4.7 points in 17 minutes.

School officials said Mays decided to transfer a few weeks ago but opted to wait until the end of the semester to announce his plans.
