The Colorado Buffaloes just keep losing players in the transfer portal. The latest loss for Tad Boyle and the Buffs hoops squad is Keeshawn Barthelemy, who was set to visit with Oregon and has now officially made the decision to join the Ducks, according to Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports.

Barthelemy wasted no time confirming this to be true by posting a picture on his Twitter feed with him in a Ducks uniform, a sight that will be strange to see for Buffs fans.

Not only do the Buffs lose a high-quality player, but they have to face him at least twice during Pac-12 play next season as he heads to Eugene to join Dana Altman’s group.

The sophomore guard finished the year averaging 11 PPG with 2.4 rebounds and 2.5 assists across 33 games.

Barthelemy was a surprise in the transfer portal, but it appears that Oregon’s style of play was a key factor in his decision (h/t Shane Hoffman of The Daily Emerald).

“[The Ducks’] style of play was very interesting to me when we played them… the way they play with their guards. They play fast. They play free.”

That isn’t the only thing, either. Barthelemy played AAU ball with Oregon forward and fellow Canadian Quincy Guerrier.

Barthelemy’s time in Boulder ends, but the Buffs don’t have to wait too long before seeing him again.
