AP Friday April 22, 2016

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Forward Ray Kasongo is leaving the Tennessee men's basketball team after one season.

Tennessee coach Rick Barnes confirmed Thursday that Kasongo "is going to leave, and he's got some different options out there."

Kasongo played 22 games as a sophomore this past season and averaged 1.4 points, 1.5 rebounds and 5.5 minutes. The 6-foot-8 forward averaged 6.0 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.2 blocks per game in 2014-15 at College of Southern Idaho.

Although he is from Canada, Kasongo graduated from Pikeville (Kentucky) High School and attended prep school at Phase 1 Academy in Phoenix.

Kasongo's departure leaves Tennessee with an open scholarship for the 2016-17 season. Barnes said that "we would use it in the right situation, and we are looking at some different situations right now."

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- The aggravated assault charge was reduced for former Vol Alexis Johnson. It was reduced to a misdemeanor from a felony.

The false imprisonment charge was dismissed in its entirety.

There will be no probation for Johnson.

Johnson was accused of strangling a woman he used to date.

According to a police report, Johnson was play fighting in his apartment with a girl he previously dated. The victim told police that the play fighting escalated when Johnson placed his hand around her throat several times. She told investigators the constriction was so tight she couldn't fight back and felt like she was going to pass out.

Investigators say a witness reported that Johnson appeared to be punching the victim and injured her lip. The witness said that Johnson tried repeatedly to touch and kiss the victim who repeatedly refused interest in a sexual encounter.

Johnson was suspended from the football team.
