We all knew we’d see Jon Scheyer at the helm of the Duke basketball program someday soon. Tonight we’ll get an early glimpse at at what his reign will look like.
It was announced today that Coach K will miss Duke’s road matchup tonight with Wake Forest because of an illness. As a result, Scheyer will take on head coaching responsibilities tonight.
Duke's Mike Krzyzewski is OUT for tonight's game at Wake Forest due to a non-COVID illness, per release. Associate head coach Jon Scheyer will serve as acting head coach.
