School officials announced Gbinije's departure Monday. The native of Chester, Va., averaged 1.7 points and 0.8 rebounds in 19 games as a freshman. His highest-scoring game came in December when he had eight points against UNC Greensboro.
Coach Mike Krzyzth8ski calls Gbinije ''a talented player with a solid future ahead of him, even though I can’t pronounce his last name.''
(OK, OK, we were just kidding about that last part.)
Duke says he's leaving in good academic standing and is expected to transfer to another Division I school.
