The nightmare 2022 season for Duquesne continues today with news of a major injury.
Duquesne announced on Friday that starting center Tre Williams will miss the next 4-6 weeks with a knee injury that he suffered on Wednesday vs. Davidson. Williams will undergo arthroscopic meniscus surgery on his right knee. Duquesne only has two games remaining in the regular season so this surgery will end Williams first season with the Dukes.

“I feel bad for Tre, because he’s worked so hard all year long,” said head coach Keith Dambrot. “Our primary concern is Tre’s health. He is receiving excellent medical care and I’m confident he’ll be able to come back at 100%.”
In his first season at Duquesne following a transfer from Indiana State, Williams averaged 10.8 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.08 blocked shots in 31.4 minutes per game. Prior to this injury, Williams was the only Duquesne player to start the team’s first 26 games.
Duquesne (6-20, 1-13) is in the midst of a 13-game losing streak and will return to action Saturday afternoon at Rhode Island.
