DURHAM, N.C.(AP) — Olek Czyz (CHIZZ) is leaving Duke’s basketball
School officials said Friday that Czyz is planning to transfer
to another Division I school.
The 6-foot-7 sophomore was primarily a backup forward who
started the first two games this season as the seventh-ranked
Blue Devils (8-1) went to a bigger lineup with guard Nolan Smith
serving a two-game suspension.
Czyz, a native of Poland who played at Reno High School in
Nevada, averaged roughly 10 minutes in the six games he played,
averaging 2.5 points and two rebounds while shooting 58 percent.
The school says Czyz is leaving in good academic standing and
coach Mike Krzyzewski (shuh-SHEFF-sky) says the program will
support him through the transfer process.
