UVa Basketball Adds Tennessee Transfer Darius Thompson

Posted: Updated:
The UVa basketball team has added another player.   Guard Darius Thompson is transferring from Tennessee to Virginia, according to Thompson's father.

Thompson averaged 2.6 points, 2.0 rebounds, and 2.4 assists as a true freshman last year at Tennessee.   He was mostly used as a backup point guard but he did start 10 games helping the Vols reach the NCAA tournament semifinals.

Thompson will have to sit out next  year at Virginia according to NCAA transfer rules.

Thompson, a 6-foot-5 Murfreesboro, Tennessee native, was granted his release at Tennessee when coach Cuonzo Martin left to become the new head coach at California.
