It’s become an all-too-frequent occurrence for the Duquesne men’s basketball program, as another one of its players has declared his intentions to find a new home.

In a statement posted to social media on Saturday, Dukes guard Tyson Acuff announced that he’d be entering the transfer portal. Acuff spent two seasons at Duquesne.

“To my guys/teammates, the bond created will never allow me to forget the moments we shared together,” Acuff said in the statement. “I am thankful for all of the relationships that have been created from simply being a Duke.”

The Detroit native appeared in all of Duquesne’s 30 games in 2021-22, seeing his name in the starting five in 16 of those contests. He averaged 5.7 points per game and led the team in 3-point percentage (39.4%).

Acuff became the third Duquesne player to enter the transfer portal since the team’s season ended on March 9, joining Toby Okani and Jackie Johnson III.
