Duke freshman students onwards Paolo Banchero, said for the first time since he responsible for assisting and abetting impaired driving in a November 14 incident involving teammates Michael Savarino, said Monday night that the Blue Devils “all learned from it” and had “moved on.”
“My teammates supported me, so it wasn’t too difficult for me,” Banchero said after scoring a career-high 28 on Monday. 107-81 wins over the Citadel. “I wouldn’t say it hasn’t been on my mind for the past two games. It’s true. I feel like today is a comeback game for me and I feel good to be out there.’ ‘
Banchero, a top NBA prospect, was on the starting lineup for Duke’s first game after the incident with Gardner-Webb on November 16. He finished with 10 points in that game and 11 points in Friday’s win over Lafayette, his lowest-scoring game of the season.
Savarino, Krzyzewski’s grandson, has been charged with impaired driving and post-consumption driving under the age of 21. He has been suspended from team activities.
“We all learned from it,” Banchero said. We learned from it and we handled it as a team. However, we continued. We want to continue our season. ”
Asked at one point during the game session with reporters if he had “regrets about what happened,” Banchero replied, “No.”
Banchero also said he did not tell the team about the situation.
“They all know what happened. I know what happened. The coach knows what happened, so I don’t need to because we all know what happened.” , Banchero said.
