    Duke's Azura Stevens Transferring to UConn
    Maryland's Kiara Leslie (2) and Duke's Azura Stevens (11) chase a loose ball during the first half of a women's college basketball regional semifinal game in the NCAA tournament, Saturday, March 28, 2015, in Spokane, Wash.

    Azura Stevens, the leading scorer and rebounder for Duke, has decided to transfer to UConn.

    The 6-foot-6 sophomore center from Raleigh, North Carolina will sit out next season and will have two years of eligibility remaining when the 2017-18 season begins the school announced Saturday.

    Stevens averaged 18.9 points and 9.6 rebounds a game and was named to the ACC's all-conference first team.

    She was second in the league both scoring and rebounding.

    UConn coach Geno Auriemma said Saturday that he normally doesn't get involved in transfer situations, but Stevens convinced him that Storrs would be the right place for her going forward.
