PITTSBURGH -- Melquan Bolding, Duquesne University's third-leading scorer, has been released from his scholarship and will transfer to another school.

Coach Ron Everhart said the decision was a mutual agreement reached during a postseason meeting with the 6-foot-3 guard, who averaged 11.8 points.

Oliver Lewinson, a 6-9 sophomore who averaged less than one point per game, will also leave the team. Morakinyo Williams, a 7-1 center who is a sophomore athletically, will pass up his remaining eligibility and will graduate this summer.

Bolding scored 25 points in Duquesne's season-opening game against Nicholls State but missed the next 13 games with a broken right wrist.

Duquesne finished 16-16, the first time in Everhart's four seasons the Dukes' record did not improve from the previous season.
