DURHAM, N.C. (AP) Duke freshman Jaemyn Brakefield plans to transfer.
The school announced Brakefield's decision Wednesday. The 6-foot-8 forward averaged 3.5 points and 2.5 rebounds in 22 games, including two starts.
In a statement, coach Mike Krzyzewski said Brakefield ''has a bright future ahead of him and we will miss him.'' Brakefield said he ''couldn't have asked for a better group of individuals to be around'' during the season played amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Brakefield had a big performance with 11 points, five rebounds and four blocks in an upset of Virginia, which won the Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season championship. He was also an all-ACC academic selection.
Duke finished 13-11 and missed the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1995.
