"It's unfortunate what happened with J. Rob," Duke coach Jon Scheyer said that night. "He was in Israel when it all happened on October 7 and his season was postponed. He came back to San Antonio, and yesterday he came here. He's a guy who, when he's around, you're happy. It was great to have him here tonight."
