May, 12, 2008
Quick hitters for Monday: • Kentucky coach Billy Gillispie said Monday that he's going to Derrick Jasper's hometown of Paso Robles, Calif., Wednesday to see if the sophomore guard still wants to transfer out of Kentucky. Gillispie said Jasper will finalize his decision this weekend, and Gillispie was told that Jasper wanted to be closer to home. Jasper was limited by injuries this past season and didn't play in the first 10 games. He missed one other game during the season and ended up averaging only 4.2 points, 5.5 rebounds and 2.4 assists in 20 games.
