LSU's coach: Oregon's Bigby-Williams transferring to Tigers
BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) LSU basketball coach Will Wade says 6-foot-11 Oregon forward Kavell Bigby-Williams is transferring to LSU this fall.

Bigby-Williams played in 37 games with Oregon, averaging 3.0 points and 2.8 rebounds. He also blocked 28 shots.
Before joining Oregon, he played at Gillette College in Wyoming, where he averaged 16.8 points, 13.6 rebounds and 5.6 blocks his sophomore season.
