From Duke: DURHAM, N.C. – The Atlantic Coast Conference has approved a medical hardship waiver for Duke senior Amile Jefferson, making him eligible to compete for the Blue Devils in 2016-17. Duke sought the waiver on Jefferson's behalf after he missed all but nine games in 2015-16 due to a right foot fracture sustained in December. In those nine games, he averaged 11.4 points and 10.3 rebounds. In 115 games in a Duke uniform, including 68 starts, Jefferson has averaged 6.1 points and 5.7 rebounds while shooting .624 from the field. His 277 career offensive rebounds are sixth-most in program history.
