DURHAM, N.C. (AP) -Duke freshman guard Andre Dawkins has left the team to be with his family in Virginia after his sister's death in a weekend car wreck.
The West Virginia State Police says 21-year-old Lacey Dawkins of Columbus, Ohio, died Saturday morning. She was a passenger in a vehicle involved in a three-vehicle accident on Interstate 77 in Pax, W.Va., while driving to the Duke-St. John's game in Durham Saturday afternoon.
In a news release Monday, Duke said Dawkins' biological mother, Tamara Hill, also was in the vehicle. West Virginia authorities had no information on her condition.
Coach Mike Krzyzewski (sha-SHEF'-skee) says in a statement the eighth-ranked Blue Devils' prayers are with Dawkins and his family.
Duke's next game is Dec. 15 against Gardner-Webb.
