Duke Transfer Olek Czyz Chooses Nevada

Last month, Olek Czyz announced that he was transferring from Duke and had been debating between Nevada and Arizona State over the past couple of weeks. By transferring in the middle of the season and enrolling in classes by January 22, Czyz becomes eligible to play in the second semester of next season. Yesterday, The Reno Gazette-Journal reported that Czyz has made his decision to play for the Wolfpack:

Czyz visited both Nevada and Arizona State recently, but his decision may have come down to playing time. ESPN analyzed his decision: "Arizona State has a bevy of talented and athletic forwards as well as incoming 7-foot-2 big Jordan Bachynski which could equal a crowded frontcourt with little minutes for Czyz." Czyz's primary concern at Duke was playing time, so it is no surprise that he chose the Wolfpack, where minutes are much more likely.

While at Duke, the sophomore guard averaged just 1.2 points per game. Czyz began this year as a starter, playing in the place of the suspended Nolan Smith. After playing 24 minute against UNC-Greensboro, Czyz didn't play more than 15 minutes in any other game this season. In his final five games before transferring, Czyz played just three total minutes.
