Gbinije Transferring From Duke

(Andrew Shurtleff/
Backup swingman Michael Gbinije is transferring from Duke.

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.
