First, shooting guard Paul Jesperson transferred out of Virginia back in May, now sophomore shooting guard Taylor Barnette is outta there too. From the Cavalier Daily: “Taylor has informed me that he has decided to transfer from our program,” head coach Tony Bennett said. “His main reason is that he wants a bigger role as a player at another school.

Barnette becomes the fourth guard and sixth player to leave Virginia since 2011. This article was originally published at http://accbasketball.com.
