The troubled UCLA's women's basketball season grew more troublesome Monday.
Coach Kathy Olivier announced that Nicole Kaczmarski, a member of the Pacific 10 Conference all-freshman team last season, had been granted a letter of release so that she can transfer.
Kaczmarski, once described by Olivier as a potential "Michael Jordan of women's basketball," had been out of school for the fall quarter while being treated at her home in Middle Island, N.Y., for a six-month-old foot injury and Lyme disease. She had been expected to enroll this month for UCLA's winter quarter.
A statement released by UCLA indicated that copies of her release letter had been sent, at Kaczmarski's request, to Duke, Florida, Georgia and Virginia.
