Duquesne’s Tre Williams To Be Sidelined with Injury



The Duquesne Dukes will look to start the 2023-24 season 3-0 as they host Stony Brook (1-1) tonight at the UPMC/Cooper Field House.

However, the Dukes will have to play tonight — and for a while  — without a valuable member of their front-court.

Pittsburgh Sports Now has learned that senior forward Tre Williams will miss at least the next two weeks with a dislocated thumb. This injury occurred Friday night in Duquesne’s game against College of Charleston.

Duquesne does have some depth up front but Williams’ rebounding and physical presence underneath will be missed.

During his absence, Keith Dambrot will be counting on and giving more minutes to freshman Jakub Necas, transfer Andrei Savrasov and transfer Fousseyni Drame. Last season, the 6’7”, 250-pound senior from Reynoldsburg, Ohio averaged 6.6 points and 4.5 rebounds for the Dukes. The year prior, Williams averaged 10.8 points and 5.7 rebounds.
