Tarin Smith Leaving Duquesne



Keith Dambrot is losing one of his top scorers from last season.

Pittsburgh Sports Now has learned that junior Tarin Smith has requested his release from Duquesne and will become a graduate transfer.

Setting young men on the path to a better future.

Last season under Dambrot, Smith averaged 12.3 points per game and was named the A-10 Sixth Man of the Year.

The biggest improvement in Smith’s game was from behind the arc. Prior to last season, he connected on only 21 career 3-pointers but in 2017-18, he made 39 in 31 games.

Sources tell PSN that despite telling coaches he’d be returning, Smith has decided to leave and it could be parental influence.

Smith is a native of New Jersey and played for Bob Hurley Sr. in high school, so, don’t be surprised if UConn becomes Smith’s next home.

UPDATE (3:15 PM)-

**Following our initial story about Tarin Smith leaving, he released this on Twitter.
