Duke guard Michael Savarino, who is the grandson of coach Mike Krzyzewski, and star freshman Paolo Banchero face DWI-related charges after Savarino’s arrest on Sunday.
According to court records obtained by The (Raleigh) News & Observer, Savarino was arrested on DWI charges and Banchero was charged with aiding and abetting DWI.
Savarino was pulled over after stop sign violation, and his breathalyzer test showed a blood alcohol content of 0.08. Banchero was charged and released.
“We are reviewing a legal matter involving two members of the men’s basketball team,” Krzyzewski said in a statement to the newspaper. “Any further actions as a result of this situation will ultimately be determined by the Vice President/Director of Athletics and University officials.”
Savarino’s court date for his DWI charge is currently set for Dec. 9. Banchero, meanwhile, has a Dec. 8 court date.
It remains unclear if both players will be allowed to play on Tuesday night against Gardner-Webb.
Banchero is averaging 19.3 points and 8.7 rebounds per game this season. The 19-year-old is considered one of the top players in college basketball and could be the No. 1 pick in the 2022 NBA Draft.
