Head Coach Ron Everhart absent from Dukes practice this week

The Trib's Dave Mackall has the story

For the 2nd day in a row Ron Everhart has not been at Duquesne's practices at the A.J. Palumbo center. Everhart also missed his weekly radio show last night. An athletic department spokesman called it a "personal matter."

Ron Everhart is expected to accompany the team to Des Moines Iowa for their weekend games in the Iowa Realty Tournament.

Who knows what this is really about? Coach Everhart did have surgery to remove a portion of his colon in September, but we really have no way of knowing why he wasn't at practice so it isn't worth speculating. Dukes fans everywhere hope all is well with Coach Everhart.

One side note:
When Coach Everhart was sick last season he missed the team's road trip to Boston where the Dukes upset a highly ranked Boston College team.

Let's hope for the best. Coach Everhart has been through alot in his short time at Duquesne. It would be nice to avoid any more serious distractions leading up to the regular season.
