Wiggins Transferring to UMass
According to Jeff Goodman of FOXSports.com, former Connecticut guard Doug Wiggins has announced that he is transferring to Massachusetts. "I didn't really get a chance at UConn," the sophomore said. "I learned a lot in my two years and my experience will help me in the future, but UMass seems like a place where I will have a great opportunity." Wiggins is looking forward to teaming with Ricky Harris and Wake Forest transfer Anthony Gurley at UMass in two years. "I'm excited," he said. "Because all three of us bring different things to the table." Wiggins averaged 6.7 points and 2.7 assists per game last season.
