Edwards to transfer from UConn


(Tuesday, December 9)

(AP) - Connecticut freshman Sadie Edwards has decided to transfer.

Coach Geno Auriemma says the guard came to him seeking more playing time, and they came to a ''mutual agreement that this can best be accomplished at a different school.'' Edwards, a Meriden native, has played in six of seven games this season for No. 2 UConn (6-1), averaging just 4.8 minutes.

Auriemma says Edwards will complete her final exams this week prior to finalizing her transfer. Edwards was part of a celebrated recruiting class for the defending national champions that also included guards Kia Nurse and Gabby Williams.

Auriemma announced the transfer on Tuesday.
