Allisha Gray, the leading scorer for the North Carolina women's basketball team in 2014-15, is transferring to the University of South Carolina.

Charlie Tuggle, a professor in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication, told The Daily Tar Heel Gray's desire to transfer was motivated by the athletic-academic scandal that has followed UNC for several years.
