The challenge for Duquesne to secure a double-bye has gotten more difficult.
A source tells Pittsburgh Sports Now that Dukes star freshman point guard Sincere Carry underwent arthroscopic knee surgery in hopes of relieving the pain he’s been dealing with.
Duquesne basketball on Pittsburgh Sports Now is sponsored by The Summit Academy: setting young men on the path to a better future.
The good news is that we’re told that despite the surgery, he’s listed as “day-to-day” and could return before the end of the season. Following tonight, Duquesne’s final three games are this Saturday vs. UMass, next Tuesday (March 6) at St. Louis and the season finale on March 9th vs. Dayton.
Tuesday at his media availability, Keith Dambrot said that “he’s got a chip floating around. A fragment broke off. That’s been his problem.”
We’re told that the hope is that the surgery will correct this issue and the hope is that Carry will soon return to full health but it’s also no guarantee that it will.
While all cases are different, a source tells PSN that what Carry is going through is similar to Arizona star freshman point guard Brandon Williams, who just returned to the court on Sunday after missing six games because of his right knee.
In his absence, sophomore Tavian Dunn-Martin will run the point and will be backed up by freshman Brandon Wade.
