Just two days before the season opener at home against Davidson (7pm ET, ESPNU), Coach K named senior Josh Hairston a captain for the 2013-2014 Duke men’s basketball season.
He joins fellow senior Tyler Thornton and sophomore Rodney Hood as team tri-captains.
Hairston is averaging 2.3 points and 2.1 rebounds (and a ton of fouls) over his career at Duke (91 games). He took a team-high 20 charges last season.
“It is a blessing and a dream come true,” said Hairston. “I’ve dreamed of being a captain on a Duke basketball team. I am very grateful to Coach K and our coaching staff, as well as my teammates for this amazing opportunity.”
