Duquesne Basketball: T.J. McConnell Picks Arizona

Sophomore guard T.J. McConnell announced on Tuesday that he will transfer to Arizona. The other school that McConnell was seriously considering transferring to was the University of Virginia, but he settled on playing for Arizona because of its style and its coaches.

I just like the way they play and I obviously love their coaching staff. I would love to play for a guy like Sean Miller. He's one of the best coaches in the NCAA

The former Duquesne Dukes player averaged 11.4 points and 5.5 assists per game during the 2011-12 season. His best game of the season was a 28-point game against Saint Joseph's on January 4. McConnell shot 10-of-16 from the field that night, including five-of-six from three point range. After sitting out the 2012-13 seasons for the transfer, he will have two years of eligibility remaining at Arizona.
