Duke’s Kyle Singler undergoes Surgery


Considered to be one of the best players in college basketball next year, Duke senior Kyle Singler underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee Friday afternoon at the Duke University Medical Center . The procedure was performed by Dr. Dean Taylor and Singler is expected to make a full recovery before the start of practice on Oct. 15.
