Lottie leaves in search for 'respect'

Jaizec Lottie was a key figure in the University of Arkansas at Little Rock's stirring turnaround this basketball season.

The 6-1, 180-pound junior guard provided experience in a rotation that wasn't loaded with it. He served as a reliable ball handler to complement sophomore Markquis Nowell, and he was an asset as both a scorer and defender.

But with his name now in the transfer portal with one season of eligibility left, Lottie is seeking to increase his role elsewhere.

"I think the situation where, at the end of the game, the ball is in my hand -- I can decide if I want to take the shot or if I can create for my other teammate," Lottie told the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette.
