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.
