"TJ had such a great season for us, and I completely support his decision to pursue his dream," Alford said. "He brought so much to our team, both on and off the court, and we're certainly going to miss him."
"There is a reason he is who he is, and the hype he has around him," UCLA guard Bryce Alford said after Friday's loss to the Wildcats. "He's very, very talented. . It's tough to stop a guy who has as good of a mid-range game as he does. That's a lost art in college basketball, and it's very hard to stop."
