Walk-ons Sherwood & Newton to Transfer

PITTSBURGH – Duquesne University head men's basketball coach Ron Everhart announced today that walk ons Jimmy Sherwood (Sharon, Mass./Cushing Academy) and Lucas Newton (Weston, Fla./Westminster Academy) have left the team to pursue other playing opportunities.

Jimmy Sherwood, a junior, and Lucas Newton, a redshirt sophomore, have each played in two games this season.

"I appreciate the contributions Jimmy and Lucas made to our program," said Everhart. "Our staff will do all we can to help them find a place where they can reach their goals. I'm sure they will both continue to succeed on the court and in the classroom."

Sherwood averaged 3.0 points and 1.3 rebounds in 24 career games. He played in 16 games with six starts as a freshman for a 2006-07 DU team that was depleted by a preseason shooting. He saw action in six games last season.

Newton, who redshirted in 2006-07, played in six games last season. He scored two points in his eight career games.
