Boston College basketball coach Steve Donahue confirmed via a school statement Wednesday that Alex Dragicevich will transfer from Notre Dame and be eligible to play two seasons for the Eagles after sitting out the 2012-13 campaign.
Dragicevich, a 6-foot-7, 221-pound guard from Northbrook, Ill., appeared in all 34 games for the Irish last season, staring 10. He averaged 6.6 points in 20.9 minutes and shot 34.2 percent from 3-point range. In the Big East opener against 22nd-ranked Pittsburgh on Dec. 27, he scored a game-high 22 points on 8-of-13 shooting, sparking a 72-59 upset.
Dragicevich told the Chicago Tribune earlier this month that he chose BC over Loyola.
“Their system is something that I was really surprised by,” Dragicevich said. “It surprised me in a way where comparing to other schools recruiting me, I really see myself succeeding in it. The way they play is perfect for me, in my eyes.
“I like the way they move the ball, the way they screen, and they like to score it a lot. They like to get up and down the court.”
Added Dragicevich: “From what coach Donahue told me, he said I can come in and really help them score. Thatâ€™s what they like to do. He liks to get scorers out there, he likes guys who know how to play. They thought I was a smart player and that’s how I fit in — somebody who knows how to play.”
