Guard Todd Mayo is leaving Marquette before his senior season to pursue professional opportunities, the school announced Wednesday.

Mayo averaged 11.3 points, 2.7 rebounds and 2.0 assists last season as a junior for the Golden Eagles.

"We wish Todd nothing but the best and appreciate his contributions to the program, not only since I arrived at Marquette, but during his entire career," Marquette coach Steve Wojciechowski said. "I completely understand his desire to continue his career at the professional level and support his decision."

Mayo, who is 23 years old, was suspended for one game last season after violating team rules and was academically ineligible during the 2012-13 season. He is the younger brother of Milwaukee Bucks guard O.J. Mayo.

Todd Mayo's departure means Marquette's 2014-15 team will have to replace the top four scorers from last season.
