Boozer to leave Duke early

July 12, 2001


— Duke center Carlos Boozer will join All-America teammate Jason Williams and leave school for the pros after next season, according to Blue Devils assistant coach Chris Collins.

Collins says Boozer plans to graduate after his junior year and will make himself available for the NBA draft. Boozer averaged 13.3 points and 6.5 rebounds as a sophomore last season when the Blue Devils won their third national championship under coach Mike Krzyzewski.

Williams, a point guard, said earlier this year that he plans to graduate early and next season will be his last with the Blue Devils.
