That's just terrible news. I can't imagine losing a sibling, especially her being only 21. That to go along with that fact that his mom could have been lost in the crash too... wow, I feel for him.

No disrespect intended, but are there any chances he takes a leave from the team and even his studies to be with his family during this time?

I wouldn't blame him one bit.

But we would be screwed then.

Obviously each person handles these things in different ways and we'll just have to wait and see. He might want to take a leave from the team and school to be with his family or he might want to keep living his life to keep him distracted from it a bit. I'm always surprised at people who choose the latter of the two, but we'll see.

He has left the team indefinitely.

That's awful, I never ever want to experience anything like that, and wouldn't wish it on anyone. He's a very talented shooter at a very good school, hopefully he and his family can bounce back soon.
You are not smarter than your favorite team's upper management, so stop trying to be.

I don't blame him one bit. People react differently to these situations; Some would want school/sports to keep them distracted while others can't concentrate on school/sports with all that's on the mind. Sounds like there's no timetable on his return, but I am sure Coach K would rather see this kid with his family during such a hard time.

On a basketball related note, this leaves Duke where we discussed last season before Dawkins graduated from HS early... Leaves them with two scholarship guards (Smith and Scheyer) for now. If Dawkins is forced to miss any games due to family matters, that means the trio (Smith, Singler, and Scheyer) will be playing heavy, heavy minutes. They're actually all playing 34+ minutes as it is. I imagine if Dawkins is forced to miss a couple games, the trio will likely be adding a 2-3 minutes onto their already 34+ per night.

this is terrible news. He lit up Wisconsin and would be a huge loss to Duke, but that don't matter right now, my thoughts and prayers go out to him through this tough time.
A Playoff will be much more fair than the BCS.

that's like the pink elephant in the middle of the room that just doesn't need to be brought up.

as if he's already not having a hard enough time.

Go Cubs Go.  

Your opinion of me is none of my business.

Terrible loss for him. He sounds like a good kid and he has a heck of a support team set up beginning with his family and ending with his team. Coach K will help him a lot I think.

I hope and assume he will come out of this well.

As disrespectful as it may sound in this situation, sport_lover_4ever could be correct or completely wrong. In general, we are almost programmed to feel the 'blame' should be put on us when something tragic like this happens. Consciously, we shouldn't blame ourselves, but it's just human nature.
