Elite prospect Carey picks Duke
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.
