Edwards to transfer from UConn

STORRS, Conn. (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.
