    Duke Cancels Trip Because Coach K Is Having Surgery

    Duke announced earlier today that Coach K is having knee replacement surgery. They are cancelling an exhibition trip to the Dominican Republic.

    I wish nothing but the best for Coach K, but doesn't seem fair to the players. Couldn't the assistants handle an exhibition trip?

    I wonder if it being an out of the country trip had anything to do with it.

    I'm not sure how that works but I would think they were already all prepared with passports, etc. at this point.

    Capel coaching the team was a disaster last season and would have been a disaster this summer. At this point he is lead recruiter - where he excels - and not heir apparent to the HC job.
