BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Indiana University men's basketball coach Tom Crean has announced that forward Bobby Capobianco will leave the men's basketball program and look to transfer to another institution where he can receive more playing time.
"Bobby has decided to go for a fresh start and transfer to a school where he can have three years to play two." said IU Coach Tom Crean. "He has indicated he would like the opportunity to find a program where he can get more playing time and continue his education. We will help him accomplish this move in any way that we can and we all really want to see Bobby be successful. My hope is that he finds a school like Indiana, that puts a prominent emphasis in academics as it does in basketball, as he has done an excellent job here in the classroom. He will be an asset to whatever program he chooses and we wish him the best as he moves to this next stage in life."

"I thoroughly enjoyed my time here at Indiana, but I want to look for an opportunity to further my basketball and academic career at another institution.," Capobianco said. "I value the experience that I have had here and appreciate everything the coaches and basketball staff have done for me. I am looking forward to this new chapter, and will always have very strong feelings for my teammates, coaches and everyone associated with IU."
