On Thursday, Duquesne forward Kevin Easley told Pittsburgh Sports Now that he will be returning to Duquesne for this upcoming season after previously declaring for the NBA Draft.
Easley has played one year for the Dukes after starting his career at Chattanooga and also playing for TCU. In 30 games last year, the 6-foot-7 forward averaged 10.7 points and 6.6 rebounds in 31.8 minutes per game. He shot 39.9% from the field and 33.3% from three-point range.
Easley’s best game of the year came in the season finale against Rhode Island, in which he scored 20 points on 8-for-12 shooting.

The return of Easley is a big one for the Dukes, as they have also brought in the following highly-talented newcomers: David Dixon, Dae Dae Grant, Halil Barre, Matus Hronsky, Devin Carney, Quincy McGriff, and Kareem Rozier. Easley and forward Tre Williams return as the two most experienced forwards on the roster, and will look to mesh with the newcomers to turn around the Duquesne program.
