Breaking: Alex Barcello is leaving the Arizona basketball team! This is a surprise. Alex was thought to be staying as he was happy in his role off the bench. The move does make sense as he may have gotten even less playing time than last season and could be a starter at the right school.

Barcello played in 30 out of 32 games & averaged 3.3 points while shooting 29.2 percent from 3-point range last season.

We're wishing Alex Barcello nothing but the best & will be rooting for him wherever he ends up! BearDown

Hopefully none of our guards get injured next year because thereís no guard depth now.

WOW... just three holdovers from last year? That's insane turnover. Hope we can gel and quickly develop chemistry you typically see between veterans that have played together for years.

He didnít shoot as well as I thought he was capable of and he played his role so his impact was limited. I think he could have had a much bigger impact last year with more time and leash. Think he has the potential to do well given the right setting. There are some head scratcher transfers to be sure but this one really sounds like a good move for him. Hope he finds the right spot.

I think that Miller pushed Barcello hard because he saw a lot of potential in him.

When I saw Alex and Akot in Maui, they were both visually disgruntled with the program and this isn't a huge surprise.

I wish Alex would have stuck around because he is a tough defender that would have taken significant minutes from Dylan Smith last year if his shot were consistent. 

Hoping that he lands in a good situation because he's a good kid that works hard.

What I was trying to say barcello could be good at a mid major school where he can play 30 minutes a game  I don't think that was going to be here  Sean Miller seems to  be trying to build a championship team.
