DURHAM, N.C. - Freshman Taylor King has decided to leave Duke University, school officials announced Monday. King saw action in all 34 games in 2007-08, averaging 5.9 points and 2.0 rebounds per game.
The Huntington Beach, Calif., native finished the season with 43 three-point field goals to rank eighth in the Duke freshman record books. He also shot 38.7 percent (43-of-111) from three-point distance to rank seventh among freshman at Duke. King had a pair of 20-point games, including a 27-point outburst against Eastern Kentucky on Nov. 25. The 6-6, 230-pound forward went 9-of-14 from the field, including 6-of-11 from three-point range, in the win over Eastern Kentucky.
“Taylor is a solid young man and has the ability to be a good player,” said Krzyzewski. “We support him in his decision to transfer and wish him the best of luck in the future.”
