Arizona center Oumar Ballo is entering the NCAA transfer portal, CBS Sports reported Monday.

Ballo led the Wildcats in rebounds (10.1 per game) and was second in scoring (12.9 points) this season.

The 7-footer from Mali was a first-team All-Pac-12 selection and was named to the conference's all-defensive team.

He has one year of eligibility remaining.

In 109 career appearances (72 starts) with Arizona, Ballo is a 64.6 percent shooter with averages of 11.2 points and 7.7 rebounds. All of his starts came in the past two seasons, when he averaged at least 26 minutes per games in each season.

Arizona (27-9, 15-5 Pac-12) lost to Clemson 77-72 in the Sweet 16 round of the NCAA Tournament.
