Elite prospect Carey picks Duke

The Bradenton Herald - - Sports -

Ver­non Carey, per­haps the great­est prospect South Florida has ever pro­duced, is join­ing the Duke Blue Devils.

The five-star cen­ter from Univer­sity School made his col­lege choice in a cer­e­mony tele­vised live on ESPN from Davie.

The se­nior picked Duke over the North Carolina Tar Heels and Michi­gan State Spar­tans, his other two fi­nal­ists.

Carey made his an­nounce­ment sit­ting be­hind a row of hats from the three schools.

He pulled a Blue Devils hand­ker­chief out from a chest pocket in­side his jacket and de­clared he would be, “join­ing the brother­hood” with coach Mike Krzyzewski and Duke.

New Mex­ico: Head coach Paul Weir apol­o­gized for the ac­tions of some of his play­ers be­fore Tues­day’s game against ri­val New Mex­ico State in Las Cruces.

Weir said in a state­ment that he was ex­tremely dis­ap­pointed and wanted to apol­o­gize to ev­ery­one at New Mex­ico and at NMSU.

He said he was em­bar­rassed and de­scribed the be­hav­ior as un­sports­man­like.
