Duke Guard Transferring To Memphis

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- Ex-Duke basketball player Elliot Williams
says he'll transfer to the University of Memphis.

Williams, a rising sophomore guard, was granted his release
Wednesday from Duke because his mom is sick.

He told The Commercial-Appeal on Saturday that he's planning to
transfer to Memphis, in his hometown, because being closer to his
family is the most important thing. It was one of the four schools
he'd been considering, along with Vanderbilt, Kentucky and
Tennessee.

He's declined to be more specific about his mother's illness.
He says he's seeking a waiver of the NCAA rule forcing
student-athletes to sit out a year after transferring.
