Duck Basketball: Jamil Wilson heads back home

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Forward Jamil Wilson is transferring to Marquette from Oregon and will have three years of eligibility left beginning in 2011-12.



Wilson, a former prep standout from Racine, started 14 of 26 games with the Ducks last season and averaged 4.7 points and 3.2 rebounds per game.

Marquette coach Buzz Williams says the transition is smooth for both the school and Wilson. Williams believes Wilson will fit well in the program and has "extremely high" potential.

Wilson led Racine Horlick to the Wisconsin state championship game in 2008-09 and was named first team all-state by The Associated Press.

Ernie Kent was fired as Oregon's coach in March after 13 seasons at the school.
