PITTSBURGH (AP) -Duquesne freshman forward Rodrigo Peggau will miss the rest of the season with a right knee injury that will require surgery later this month or in January.
The 6-foot-8 Peggau gave the undersized Dukes a physical presence inside, averaging 5.5 points and 3.3 rebounds as a reserve in four games.
Peggau, one of Duquesne's eight freshmen, has had two knee operations in the last year, and the latest injury occurred in practice on Wednesday.
Peggau, a native of Brazil, was hampered by knee problems during his final season at the Patterson School in North Carolina.
