Duke's Michael Gbinije transferring

DURHAM, N.C. -- 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 Krzyzewski calls Gbinije "a talented player with a solid future ahead of him."

Duke says he's leaving in good academic standing and is expected to transfer to another Division I school.
