Elite prospect Carey picks Duke

The State - - 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.

Kansas: Coach Bill Self is hope­ful that in­jured cen­ter Udoka Azubuike will be back on the floor by the time the se­cond-ranked Jay­hawks open Big 12 play against Ok­la­homa Jan. 2.

The 7-footer sus­tained a se­vere high an­kle sprain when he landed awk­wardly on aWof­ford player in the Jay­hawks’ 72-47 rout on Tues­day night.
