Joey Sykes | The Duquesne Duke
On Thursday, April 20, Duquesne men’s basketball coach Jim Ferry announced junior Tra’Vaughn White has been granted permission to transfer from Duquesne.
The 21-year-old guard out of Kansas City, Kansas, transferred from Independence Community College where he was the nation’s top junior college scorer in 2012-13 where he scored over 1,200 points.
White started in eight of the Dukes’ 30 regular season matchups and he scored a total of 221 points and had 55 rebounds in his tenure at Duquesne. He averaged 7.4 points per game and played 16.6 minutes per game.
Ferry stated in a press release that he expressed his gratefulness and support for White in his future endeavors.
“Tra’Vaughn is a great kid and a great teammate who will always be part of our Duquesne family,” Ferry said. “He made the decision to pursue other opportunities and we, as a staff, are committed to supporting him in his transition. We wish him nothing but the best.”
It has not been made known where White will be transferring to or if he will be continuing his college basketball career. With his transfer, forward Dominique McKoy will become the lone senior to play basketball for the Dukes next season.
