Jasper Transferring to UNLV
Former Kentucky guard Derrick Jasper has announced that he will be transferring to UNLV. "I really enjoyed the weekend and I love the city," Jasper told the Las Vegas Sun. "I got to hang out with the players. They seem like real great guys. I like how coach operated practice and motivates the players. It seems like a great fit for me." One of the things that helped Jasper make his decision was his former AAU teammate, Tre'Von Willis, who transferred from Memphis to UNLV two seasons ago. "I really enjoy playing with him in our AAU days,” Jasper said. "He’s a great teammate. He competes really hard, and it will be nice to suit up with him again." Jasper, a 6-6 guard, averaged 4.2 points and 5.5 rebounds per game last season for the Wildcats.
