Duke head coach Jon Scheyer has announced that freshman Dereck Lively II will dress and be available to play tonight when the No. 7 Blue Devils host USC Upstate at 6:30 p.m. at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

Lively, the preseason Rookie of the Year in the ACC, has yet to see action for the Blue Devils after sustaining a calf injury during preseason practice. The 7-foot-1, five-star center from Philadelphia was the No. 1-rated overall player in the 2022 class and headlined Scheyer’s first signing class that was ranked No. 1 nationally.

Tonight’s game airs live on ACC Network and can be heard on the Blue Devil Sports Network from LEARFIELD.
