For the second time this off-season, the Duquesne men’s basketball program has a player enter the transfer portal.
Pittsburgh Sports Now has learned that guard Ashton Miller has decided to leave Duquesne following his freshman season. In 23 games this season, the freshman from New Jersey averaged 1.2 points per game and saw his minutes dwindle once the Dukes got into conference play.
A source tells PSN that Miller’s decision to leave the program was based on not seeing a defined role and lack of anticipated playing time in the future. Next season, the Dukes will return their entire backcourt of Sincere Carry, Maceo Austin, Tavian Dunn-Martin and Evan Buckley and will be adding freshman guard Tyson Acuff, who is expected to have a spot in the rotation.
Earlier this off-season, junior guard Frankie Hughes entered the transfer portal and quickly committed to play at San Diego.
With this move, Duquesne is at their scholarship limit of 13, although the Dukes may not be done with offseason changes.
