“We played them three times while I was at Baylor,” Bello told the site. “I really like the way coach Haith's team play. They get up and down, they play defense well. I just really like the style of play.”
Bello, a 6-foot-4 North Carolina native, averaged 2.4 points last season for the Bears. He's a terrific athlete and a former four-star prospect coming out of high school. Given his length and leaping ability, he could be a decent fit for Missouri's up-tempo operation.
After sitting out the upcoming season, Bello should see plenty of minutes on the wing in 2014-15. Jabari Brown could still be around, but Bello will get a chance to contribute in a major way.
