Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski reportedly banned his players from wearing Blue Devils apparel and even entering their locker room as they are in the midst of a 1-3 stretch.
Franklin native Luke Kennard is the team’s leading scorer at 19.8 points per game as several youngsters who were supposed to make the team into a national title contender have been in and out of the lineup with injuries.
The Blue Devils have lost three of their last four games, including an 84-82 setback at home against NC. State earlier this week and a 16-point loss at Florida State on Jan. 10.
They have also had to deal with controversy surrounding Grayson Allen, a junior who was considered a national player of the year candidate but was suspended for a game following multiple tripping incidents.
Krzyzewski is on leave as he recovers from back surgery, and Jeff Capel is serving as acting head coach.
