The Blue Devils will be without their captain Saturday.
In a team release Saturday afternoon, Duke head coach Jon Scheyer announced that junior guard Jeremy Roach will not be available against Maryland Eastern Shore with a toe injury. This is the same injury he sustained Nov. 27 in the Blue Devils’ Phil Knight Legacy matchup against Purdue, but this is the first game he has missed.
Roach is Duke’s second-leading scorer, averaging 13.1 points per game in his 11 starts. The Blue Devils won in his absence, taking down the Hawks 82-55.
After the game, Scheyer stated that Roach has not been able to practice since sustaining the injury, but is expected to return for Duke's next game at Wake Forest Dec. 20.
