Jasper, Teammate to Transfer
As has been rumored for the past several weeks, Kentucky sophomore guard Derrick Jasper is planning to announce his plans to leave the Wildcats and transfer to another program. Coach Billy Gillispie said an official announcement should come this week. Jasper missed the first ten games of the season to recover from knee surgery, an injury that hampered him throughout the year. He averaged 4.2 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game. Furthermore, seldom-used freshman center Morakinyo Williams has asked for his release from the program and will also transfer.
