University of Arizona men's basketball student-athlete Zach Peters will remain on scholarship as a student at UA, but will end his basketball career as a result of a medical exemption filed by the university.

"You never want to see anyone's athletic career cut short by injury, especially a person of Zach's character," Arizona head coach Sean Miller said. "That being said, this is a decision made with an eye toward Zach's bright and productive future. He has nothing but our full support as he begins his next chapter."

"I want to thank everyone who has supported me throughout my basketball career," Peters said. "I especially want to thank my family, as well as the medical staff, coaching staff and my teammates at the University of Arizona for their support over the course of a trying year.

"As advised by many medical professionals, this is the best course of action to ensure myself a safe and healthy future. I'm excited to remain a student and pursue a degree at the University of Arizona."

The Plano, Texas, native played in 11 games for the Wildcats during the 2013-14 season. He intends to pursue a business degree from UA.
