Despite a successful season on the court, freshman forward Chad Baker won’t be returning to play for the Duquesne Dukes.
A source tells Pittsburgh Sports Now that despite his talent, Baker and the Duquesne staff had philosophical issues that made it necessary for him to leave the program.
During the second half of the season, Baker developed into one of the Dukes most consistent scoring threats. In 15 games, the 6’7” forward averaged 24.4 minutes, 9.5 points and 2.9 rebounds while shooting 43.8% from the field and 41.7 from 3-point range.
Baker hasn’t entered the transfer portal but once he does, he’ll have four seasons of eligibility remaining.
The Dukes are currently one player over the 13 man scholarship limit.
