Freshman Guard Jeremy Roach Talks about his Health, Playing Point Guard at Duke and Team Competitiveness


On how he is feeling physically during the first couple weeks of practice:

“I think my body is coming along great since I’ve been down here. I’ve been getting stronger, been getting bigger. Coach (Krzyzewski) has definitely been on me about my weight. I think just coming from the WCAC [Washington Catholic Athletic Conference] and playing for Team Takeover, I’ve just been accustomed to those practices and been used to them over the years, so I’m adjusting pretty well.”

On what he brings to Duke:

“I’m a scoring guard, I get my teammates involved, lead the team, play defense, just do anything that it takes to win.
