Duke's Chelsea Gray to miss remainder of season
Posted February 19, 2013
Duke University head coach Joanne P. McCallie announced Tuesday that junior point guard Chelsea Gray will miss the rest of the 2012-13 campaign due to a right knee cap dislocation.
Gray was injured in the first half of Duke's win over Wake Forest Sunday. The injury requires surgery to repair. No timetable has been set for her return.
Gray 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 foot 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 ACC) will next host 19th-ranked Florida State on Friday, Feb. 22 at 7:00 p.m., in Cameron Indoor Stadium.
