Kyle Filipowski returns for another season in Durham. He averaged 15.1 points, 9 rebounds, and 1.6 assists per game last year. Filipowski was voted First Team All-ACC and ACC Preseason Player of the Year.
Guard Tyrese Proctor is back, and graduate transfers Ryan Young (Northwestern) and Neal Begovich (Stanford) have now joined the team.
Duke is coming into the season as the No. 2 ranked team in the country with some high expectations. It will go a long way for Scheyer if the Blue Devils win the conference championship for the second year in a row.
Duke’s 2023-2024 season tips off on Nov. 6 against Dartmouth. The game will start at 9 p.m. ET on ACC Network.
