On Tuesday, Jett Roesing, a Pittsburgh native who played just one season for Duquesne, entered the transfer portal.
Roesing is a 6-foot-4 guard who is known for his three-point shooting ability. He appeared in just one game for Duquesne this year (at Fordham) and did not record a point in that appearance. In an explosive senior season for First Love Christian Academy, he averaged 26.2 points, six rebounds, and 4.3 assists per game.

He committed to Duquesne back on July 31, 2019, choosing the Dukes over other offers from Fordham, UMass, Delaware, Manhattan, Canisius, Towson, Bryant, Wagner, Fairfield, Rider and Central Connecticut State.
“For the last couple of months, Coach Dambrot has really shown me and my family that he wanted me,” he told Pittsburgh Sports Now at the time of his commitment. “We’ve built such a great relationship, not only about basketball but about my life. No matter what state I’ve been playing in, he was at every game. If I had a game at 8 AM, he was in the gym at 7:30 AM. Seeing that familiar face really made me feel comfortable and really showed me that he cared. I’ve built a great relationship with him that couldn’t be better.”
With the move, Duquesne is now back down to the allowed number of scholarship players on the roster, however, PSN is hearing that more personnel moves are expected.
