Another Colorado hoops player will be using his pandemic-granted extra year of eligibility. Forward Alex Strating, who comes off a senior season where he saw limited minutes, is headed to Missouri S&T to play Division II basketball.
Strating joins D’Shawn Schwartz (George Mason), Dallas Walton (Wake Forest) and Jeriah Horne (Tulsa) as senior ex-Buffs that will play their extra season elsewhere.
Since coming to Colorado as a redshirt freshman for the 2016-17 season, Strating’s sophomore year remains his best in the black and gold when he averaged just under two points per game coming off the bench. The standout game of his time at CU came in the 2018-19 Pac-12 quarterfinals when he scored a career-high 10 points against Oregon State.
A Netherlands native, Strating’s presence became limited following his sophomore season. He averaged just 3.4 minutes during his junior year and 2.4 during a scoreless senior year.
Strating will now have a fresh start with a Miners team that finished 4-16 in the Great Lakes Valley Conference.
