Former Virginia guard Paul Jesperson has transferred to Northern Iowa. Coach Ben Jacobson announced Tuesday that Jesperson will join the Panthers.
He'll sit out in 2013-14 and have two years of eligibility left. Jesperson averaged 4.7 points for Virginia last season and shot 37 percent from 3-point range.
He started 33 games in two seasons with the Cavaliers. The 6-foot-6 Jesperson was The Associated Press player of the year as a senior at Merrill High in Wisconsin.
