No. 3 Duke’s Kelly to play against No. 7 Miami
DURHAM, N.C. (AP) — Duke forward Ryan Kelly is expected to play Saturday night when the third-ranked Blue Devils play No. 7 Miami.
The 6-foot-11 senior has missed the last 13 games with a foot injury. He is averaging 13 points and five rebounds.
BRACKET PREDICTION: Does Duke deserve to be No. 1 seed?
Duke spokesman Jon Jackson says Kelly is set to play against the Hurricanes though it was not known whether he would start.
Kelly injured his right foot in a win against Clemson in January and has been out ever since. Duke was unbeaten and ranked No. 1 at the time of his injury.
Duke can stay in the hunt for a share of the Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season title with a win against first-place Miami, who beat the Blue Devils by 27 points in the first meeting.
