Notre Dame coach Mike Brey has confirmed that sophomore shooting guard Alex Dragicevich will leave the program after the spring semester.

“I am sorry to see Alex leave our basketball program, but I fully support his decision to transfer to another school. Alex has been a terrific representative of our basketball program and always has conducted himself with a great deal of class. My staff, players and I, in addition to our entire Notre Dame basketball family, wish Alex nothing but the best as he continues his playing career at another institution.”

Dragicevich, a former 3-star recruit, has not said why he is transferring or where he plans to continue his basketball career.

The sophomore averaged 6.6 points per game and shot 34.2 percent from three-point land this season. He played in every Irish game and made 10 starts during the season.

The highlight of Dragicevich's season occurred when he scored 22 points in Notre Dame's victory over Pitt early in the Big East season.

The speculation is that Dragicevich is anticipating a decrease in playing time with Scott Martin campaigning for another year of eligibility, Pat Connaughton returning and incoming freshman Cameron Biedscheid expected to play right away.
