Report: Barnette Transferring to Belmont

Former Virginia guard Taylor Barnette is transferring to Belmont, according to Jeff Borzello of CBSSports.com.

UVa announced earlier in July that the sophomore guard had asked for a release from the program. Barnette will have to sit out a year at Belmont, per NCAA transfer rules.

The 6-3 Barnette averaged 2.6 points and shot 43.2 percent (19-of-44) from 3-point range in 26 games during his freshman season in 2012-13. Barnette started two games for the Cavaliers. He scored a career-high 13 points in the Cavs' second-round NIT win over St. John's.

Barnette is the second UVa player to transfer this summer. Paul Jesperson also left this offseason and is now enrolled at Northern Iowa.
