Ex-UNLV players choose new schools

Updated July 4, 2019 - 1:23 am

Former UNLV basketball players Trey Woodbury, Tervell Beck and Ben Coupet Jr. have transferred.

Woodbury, who also went to Clark High School, transferred to Utah Valley. He averaged 1.4 points as a freshman last season at UNLV.

“The signing of Trey Woodbury is a huge addition to our program,” Utah Valley coach Mark Madsen told the Deseret News of Salt Lake City. “He is a unique player who is not only a top flight shooter, but can break down defenses off the dribble and create for his teammates. Trey is an explosive athlete who attacks the rim and finishes with athleticism.”

Beck has transferred to Cleveland State, which is in his hometown. He changed his Instagram handle to include the change. Beck averaged 4.1 points and 2.1 rebounds last season.

Coupet is headed to Arkansas-Little Rock, according to the website Verbal Commits. He played in nine games last season, also averaging 1.4 points.
