Backup Alex Murphy Transferring From No. 10 Duke

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Duke says Alex Murphy is transferring out of the program.

Team spokesman Matt Plizga issued a statement Friday saying Murphy is leaving in good academic standing and is expected to transfer to another Division I school.

Murphy says, "It is in my best interest to leave the program at this point." Coach Mike Krzyzewski says it was "an honor" to have him at Duke and supports his decision.

Murphy is a 6-foot-9 forward who played in five games for the 10th-ranked Blue Devils (7-2) and averaged one point and one rebound.

His older brother Erik is a rookie with the Chicago Bulls who played college ball at Florida.
