6-foot-9 Forward Amari Kelly to Transfer From Duquesne



On Tuesday, former Duquesne forward Amari Kelly entered the transfer portal after three years with the program.

In his freshman season with the Dukes, the Long Island, New York native averaged 10.6 minutes, 2.1 points, and 2.1 rebounds per game in 29 appearances. After a season-ending knee injury sidelined him for the rest of his freshman campaign, Kelly sat out his would-be sophomore season as a redshirt.

While injuries undoubtedly affected his playing time throughout his career at Duquesne, Kelly battled through the adversity and made his way back to the court this season.

Kelly rebounded back to full health this season and appeared in 14 games for Duquesne, scoring 35 total points on 49% shooting and grabbing 20 rebounds on the year. He finishes his career with one double-digit scoring game, which came in his freshman season when he dropped 11 against Fordham.

Kelly has not announced where he will be spending the rest of his career yet.
