Boggs to transfer
Hokie guard to leave after fall semester

BLACKSBURG, Va. – Virginia Tech guard Ben Boggs has decided to transfer at the end of the fall semester, head coach Seth Greenberg announced today.

“Ben has been a valuable member of our team the last two years,” Greenberg said. “He has been a model student-athlete. I wish him nothing but the best and will be available to him as he pursues his next opportunity.”

Boggs, a sophomore from Roanoke, Va., appeared in the team’s first four games of the season, scoring five points, with a rebound and an assist. He has not played in any of the last four games. He appeared in 25 games as a freshman, averaging 2.2 points and 1.4 rebounds per contest, before missing the final three games of the season with an ankle injury.

“I have enjoyed my time at Virginia Tech and would like to thank Coach Greenberg and the coaching staff for all they have done for me,” Boggs said. “ A desire for more playing time is the reason I’m leaving Virginia Tech. I will miss my teammates and wish them the best of luck in the future.”
