College Accepts Cuban

TORONTO () -- One of the two players who left the Cuban team and requested refugee status in Canada during the World Championship of Basketball will accept a scholarship from Durham College.

Augusto Duquesne, 26, a 6-foot-6 forward, followed compatriot Richard Matienzo in leaving the Cuban national team earlier this month. Duquesne was set Thursday to accept one of the 28 athletic scholarships offered by the college in Oshawa, Ontario.
