Brian Bernardi is the latest player to leave SMU.
The 6-foot-2 sophomore shooting guard from New York Xaverian obtained his release and will become the fourth SMU player this offseason to transfer. He averaged 3.5 points in 31 games last season and will have three years of eligibility remaining.
“After careful consideration, Brian has asked for and been granted his release from SMU,” New Heights coach Chris Alesi told SNY.tv.
“With the additions of Crandall Head and Keith Frazier, playing time moving forward was the main issue, but Dallas, TX is a long way from Staten Island, N.Y. This will allow Brian to be closer to home.
