Bello appeared in 66 games for Baylor the past two seasons, averaging 3.3 points per game as a freshman in 2011-12 and 2.4 points as a sophomore last season. He averaged 10 minutes a game each season and shot 46.5 percent. Known as a perimeter defender, Bello took only 25 shots from 3-point range in his two years at Baylor, making just five.

"I’m more of a slasher," he said. […]

In high school, Bello was recruited by Missouri assistant coach Tim Fuller, who was then an assistant at Louisville. Haith’s recent track record with Division-I transfers factored into Bello’s decision, he said.

"That was a big one," he said. "Those guys, like Alex, have done well when they’ve come to the program."

5. A worthy cause

We're already asking you to donate to the Stubble Drive, but if you've got any spare cash for donating, Crimson & Cream Machine's Moore Tornado Victims Fund is certainly a worthy cause.

If people in Oklahoma City regard a tornado (or a series of them) as The Tornado, you know it was devastating. And that's always how the events of May 3, 1999, have been remembered. The Tornado. Well, yesterday's was quite a bit bigger and quite a big stronger, I believe, than that one. And the early indications are that it was bigger and stronger than Joplin, too. I can't even begin to comprehend it. People in Oklahoma grow up around the spectre of storms -- there's a tornado watch in place for basically every day between April 1 and May 31. I've always thought of it as a minor version of growing up in a war zone: You live your life, and you enjoy yourself as much as possible, and you know that you could be struck by disaster at any moment each spring. You have faith that it won't happen to you, but you know it might. It's a challenge, one Missourians know well, too, of course. But even if you know disaster can strike, you still don't expect that. You don't expect "biggest, most devastating tornado in the history of the planet." And you don't expect it to plow into elementary schools. So yeah. If you have pledged your money to the Stubble Drive and don't have any left to donate, don't worry about it. But if you do feel you can chip in, go over to C&C Machine and help out. They're going to need it.
