    CARBONDALE, Ill. - The Saluki men's basketball program announced Tuesday that forward Jordan Armstrong and guard Brandon Wood have been granted transfers in order to continue their playing careers elsewhere.

    Armstrong recently completed his third season at Southern Illinois. He redshirted in 2006, played in 10 games in 2007 and in 11 games in 2008. The Muncie, Ind. native has two years of eligibility remaining.

    "Jordan has a great attitude and has been a positive role model for our program," said head coach Chris Lowery. "He found himself stuck behind some very talented players in our front court and didn't get as much playing time as he would have liked. We wish Jordan and his family all the best."

    Wood played just one season for SIU, competing in six games before a stress fracture in his leg ended his season in mid-December. In those half dozen games, Wood scored 22 points and showed an excellent shooting touch, coming off the bench to make three 3-pointers.

    "The timing of the injury was unfortunate for Brandon because it set him back," Lowery said. "He is clearly a very gifted offensive player, and I am confident he has a bright basketball future ahead of him."
