Tre Williams out for Duquesne against St. Bonaventure with Shoulder Injury



Tre Williams. Duquesne

NEW YORK — Duquesne senior forward Tre Williams is out against St. Bonaventure in the Atlantic-10 Tournament semifinal match on Saturday at the Barclays Center.

Williams wore street clothes and had his left arm in a shoulder sling during warm-ups and did not participate. He went down while blocking a shot with 2:11 left in the 65-57 win over Dayton in the Quarterfinals on Thursday and did not return. He suffered a left shoulder injury that will keep him out for this tame.

Dukes head coach Keith Dambrot didn’t rule Williams out from playing against the Bonnies, saying Mitchell is a “tough kid,” but he acknowledged that it would be an uphill battle for the forward to get back on the floor so quickly after a significant injury.

“I think our depth is good,” Dambrot said. “It’s gonna get tested again because Tre Williams is pretty banged up.”

Williams started the last 19 games for Duquesne, earning a record of 13-6 in that time. He has averaged 3.6 points per game, shooting 44.3% from the floor and grabbing 2.8 rebounds per game.

In his place, graduate student forward Fousseyni Drame will start. He is joined by fellow graduate student forward in Dusan Mahorcic in the starting lineup, while guards in seniors Jimmy Clark III and Dae Dae Grant and first-year/walk-on Jake DiMichele start for the Dukes.
