DURHAM, N.C. – Duke University head coach Joanne P. McCallie announced junior point guard Chelsea Gray will miss the rest of the 2012-13 campaign due to a right knee cap dislocation that requires surgery to repair, following a MRI on Monday. No time table for her return has been set.
A native of Manteca, Calif., Gray suffered the injury at the 8:01 mark of the first half on Sunday, Feb. 17 against Wake Forest. She had started 60 straight games for the Blue Devils, including all 25 contests this season for fifth-ranked Duke.
Gray, an All-America selection as a sophomore, was averaging 13.1 points, 5.6 assists, 5.4 rebounds and 3.7 steals prior to the injury on Sunday. She was leading the ACC in assists and steals, while ranking in the top 10 nationally as well. The 5-11 guard was having one of the best all-around seasons in Duke history and was presented with a souvenir ball prior to Sunday’s game for reaching the 1,000-point plateau against Maryland on Feb. 11.
The Blue Devils (24-1, 14-0 in ACC) will next host 19th-ranked Florida State on Friday, Feb. 22 at 6:30 p.m., in Cameron Indoor Stadium. The game will be aired live on RSN-TV.
