Ex-Reno hoops star Czyk leaving Duke for Nevada

RENO – Former Reno High School basketball star Olek Czyz (CHIZH) has decided to transfer from Duke to Nevada.

The 6-foot-7 sophomore forward announced last month he intended to leave Duke because of a lack of playing time. He confirmed his plans in a text message to a Reno newspaper on Tuesday that he has selected Nevada over Arizona State.

A native of Poland, Czyz played for two state championship teams at Reno High and was one of the most highly recruited players in the country out of high school. He played in only 19 games in his freshman and sophomore seasons at Duke, averaging 1.2 points a game.

He will be eligible to play for the Wolf Pack after the fall semester next season and will have 2 1/2 years of eligibility remaining.
