According to Edward Barcello, the father of Alex, Arizona head coach Sean Miller and assistant Joe Pasternack watched all of Barcellos games this weekend in Indianapolis, while Arizona State assistant coach Stan Johnson checked in on Barcello for one of his matchups. Sun Devil head coach Bobby Hurley saw Barcello play twice in round one of the Gauntlet in Texas the day after he was hired.
