'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Duquesne guard P.J. Torres has decided to leave the men's basketball program and was granted his release, he said Saturday.

The 6-foot-4 sophomore reserve had played in 12 of the team's 15 games but averaged just 7.3 minutes, 2.8 points and 1.3 rebounds. A native of New Rochelle, N.Y., Torres was undecided about where he would enroll next.

“It just felt like this wasn't a good fit for me,” he said. “I feel I could go somewhere else and help another program.”

Torres said he spoke with coach Jim Ferry on Friday. Torres, who was recruited to Duquesne by Ron Everhart, played nine games as a freshman.
