Duke freshman guard Andre Dawkins has left the team to be with
his family in Virginia after his sister’s death in a weekend car
The West Virginia State Police says 21-year-old Lacey Dawkins of
Columbus, Ohio, died Saturday morning. She was a passenger in a
vehicle involved in a three-vehicle accident on Interstate 77 in
Pax, W.Va., while driving to the Duke-St. John’s game in Durham
In a news release Monday, Duke said Dawkins’ biological mother,
Tamara Hill, also was in the vehicle. West Virginia authorities had
no information on her condition.
Coach Mike Krzyzewski (sha-SHEF’-skee) says in a statement the
eighth-ranked Blue Devils’ prayers are with Dawkins and his
Duke’s next game is Dec. 15 against Gardner-Webb.
