Griffin Playing Tonight for Duke

AJ Griffin will be in the lineup tonight for Duke when it meets Texas Tech in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Division I men’s basketball tournament in San Francisco.

Tipoff is 9:30 p.m. on CBS

The Archbishop Stepinac High School graduate injured his left ankle in the second half of his team’s second-round win over Michigan State. The freshman forward was seen walking near the bench area, but never left the court to receive treatment.

Griffin is averaging 10.3 points and 3.9 rebounds per game, and is shooting 50 percent from the floor and 46 percent from three-point range. He earned a spot on All-Atlantic Coast Conference Freshman Team and was honorable mention All-ACC.

Duke (30-6) won the Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season championship and is the second seed in the West Regional. Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski is coaching in his final season and will retire at the end of the season.
