As Duke preps for the upcoming trip to Canada, a few notes.
First, Tre Jones (hip) and Cam Reddish (groin) will not play.
Secondly, while Coach K says the trip north is not about RJ Barrett, who is a Canadian citizen (K says he’s been too busy in the summers with USA Basketball to schedule an international tour), he has some significant praise for Barrett’s character:
The kid’s a winner, and an outstanding player,” the coach told Canoe.com. “He wants to be special. He’s engaged every second with you, and he’s smart, off the court (he’s) fun, very intelligent, he’s way ahead of his years as far as maturity, a very very mature player.”
He also said he has no concerns about Zion Williamson’s weight, saying that he finds Williamson “graceful.”
We’re just a few days away from summer hoops!
- Duke Blue Devils, R.J. Barrett take on McGill Redmen next Sunday
- R.J. Barrett to make Duke debut in hometown of Toronto
