Feb. 28, 2001
DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - Duke center Carlos Boozer will miss the Atlantic Coast Conference tournament with a broken foot.
Boozer fractured the third metatarsal in his right foot during the No. 2 Blue Devils' 91-to-80 loss to Maryland on Tuesday.
The injury will keep him out of Sunday's regular-season finale game against North Carolina and the ACC tournament March 8-11 in Atlanta. The status of the 6-foot-9, 270-pound center's status will be determined after the conference tournament.
"We're optimistic that Carlos can return for the NCAA tournament," said Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski.
The Juneau, Alaska, native has averaged 14 points a game this season.
