Teddy Allen, Nebraska's leading scorer, is leaving the program, the school announced Monday.

"After a lot of thought over the last few days, I have made the decision to focus on getting fully healthy in preparation for the next step in my basketball journey," Allen said in a news release. "I will continue to stay at Nebraska for the spring semester and work toward graduation. I am looking forward to what the future holds, as I explore my options."

Allen, a 6-foot-6 junior from Mesa, Ariz., played just one season for the Cornhuskers after beginning his career at West Virginia in 2017-18. He redshirted the following season, then played at Western Nebraska Community College before moving on to Nebraska this season.

In 22 games (21 starts), he averaged 16.5 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.7 assists, shooting 49.4 percent from two-point range and 37.6 percent on 3-pointers. He scored a career-high 41 points in a loss to Penn State on Feb. 23.

Nebraska (6-17, 2-14 Big Ten) concludes the regular season with games against Rutgers, Iowa and Northwestern this week before heading into the Big Ten tournament, which begins March 10.
