Mike Krzyzewski has essentially ended any and all rumors of Rodney Hood returning to Duke next season. After the redshirt sophomore sunk a pair of free throws with 3.8 seconds left to give his team a 63-62 win against Clemson in the ACC tournament quarterfinals, Krzyzewski lauded the Blue Devil captain for his coachability during his postgame press conference. In the process, the Hall of Fame coach acknowledged the fact that this season would be Hood's first and last in a Duke uniform. The Chronicle

Duke redshirt sophomore Alex Murphy has decided to transfer at the end of the semester, according to a source close to the situation. Murphy has appeared in five of Duke’s nine games this season, averaging 6.6 minutes and one point and rebound per game. He did not play in Duke’s most recent game against Michigan. Murphy was a 4-star recruit in the class of 2011 from Saint Mark's School in South Kingstown, R.I. After redshirting, he played sparingly last year, averaging 2.1 points and one rebound in 6.3 minutes per game. Expectations were high for Murphy entering the 2012-13 season, as he started both exhibition games before being permanently scratched from the starting lineup. Raleigh News & Observer

Duke forwards Rodney Hood and Jabari Parker both average over 30 minutes at the position Murphy would play. The Blue Devils are also set to bring in the No. 1 recruiting class, which contains forward Justise Winslow. Raleigh News & Observer
