DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Duke says freshman point guard Trevon Duval is suspended for the top-ranked Blue Devils’ final preseason game because he violated undisclosed team standards.
Team spokesman Jon Jackson announced the suspension Friday, one day before Duke plays Bowie State. The regular season starts Nov. 10.
Duval, a five-star recruit, is one of the key members of the nation’s top-ranked recruiting class. He had seven points and five assists in the Blue Devils’ first exhibition game, a 93-60 rout of defending Division II national champion Northwest Missouri State.
Earlier this week, Duke was voted as the nation’s No. 1 team in The Associated Press preseason Top 25 for the second straight year.
