DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -Elliot Williams is leaving Duke after one season because of family medical reasons.
School officials said Wednesday that Williams plans to transfer to a school closer to his hometown of Memphis, Tenn., to be near his family. The guard is expected to ask the NCAA to waive its transfer rule that would require him to sit out this season.
Coach Mike Krzyzewski called Williams ``a good young man with an opportunity to become an outstanding player.''
Williams' late-season emergence was one of the reasons the Blue Devils won the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament and reached the regional semifinals of the NCAA tournament.
The high-energy guard started 11 of Duke's final 12 games and averaged 4.2 points and 2.3 rebounds.
