Rising Duke University women’s basketball junior Alexis Jones announced Monday she will transfer in order to be closer to home.

"I would like to thank Coach P for the opportunity to attend Duke University,” said Jones. “Due to injuries, I feel the need to be closer to my family."

A native of Irving, Texas, Jones competed in 64 contests over two years with the Blue Devils. She averaged 11.1 points, 4.3 rebounds, 4.6 assists and 1.9 steals in 64 collegiate starts. The 5-8 guard suffered a torn ACL at Notre Dame last February and missed the final seven games of the season.

"We are very sad to see Alexis go because we love her and her family,” commented McCallie. “Given her significant surgeries and her chance to redshirt this year, we support her with this decision. We wish her the best as she heads home.”
