With the talent Oklahoma State has on its roster, coach Travis Ford and the Cowboys have the potential for an NCAA tournament appearance.
They suffered a hit on Monday, though, when sources informed CBSSports.com that Cezar Guerrero decided to leave the school.
Guerrero wanted to move closer to home in Los Angeles, according to a source, but has not yet decided on his next destination. He played well on the Cowboys' recent overseas trip to Spain, and was a consistent member of the rotation.
"He left the team in good standing and his academics are fine," a source said.
Oklahoma State's fall semester began Monday, and Guerrero didn't want to wait until the semester break to leave -- in order to preserve his entire season of eligibility. A source said he is considering several schools within three or four hours of Los Angeles.
Guerrero, a 6-foot point guard, averaged 5.6 points and 1.6 assists last season.
