Pittsburgh, PA (Sports Network) – Duquesne University basketball coach Ron
Everhart announced on Friday that freshman guard/forward Scott Grote has
received his release from the school.

“Scott informed me that he decided it would be best for him to continue his
college career at a different school and we honored his request,” said
Everhart. “I informed Scott that we were only interested in players who wanted
to be with us here at Duquesne. I wish him the best.”
