The Duquesne Dukes are losing a member from their starting five.
Pittsburgh Sports Now has confirmed that junior guard Lamar Norman Jr. has entered the transfer portal. The news was first reported by Verbal Commits.com.

The 6-foot-3 shooting guard from Grand Rapids, Michigan has played in a possible 57 of 62 games at Duquesne and has been a full-time starter since the thirteenth game of the 2019-20 season. In four games this season, Norman was averaging five pointsper game and shooting only 23% from the field and 23.8% from three-point range.
PSN reached out to the Norman family for comment or reason for the decision to transfer and are waiting for a response.
To replace Norman, head coach Keith Dambrot could switch senior Tavian Dunn-Martin from being the first person off the bench and insert him into the starting lineup. As far as replacing his minutes, look for recent addition Ryan Murphy and freshman Tyson Acuff to have more prominent roles.
Duquesne is back in action on Tuesday night as they play their first home game of the season against Davidson. Tipoff from LaRoche University is set for 7 p.m.
