Duke Guard Faints After Title Game

March 8, 1998

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) _ Duke point guard Steve Wojciechowski, who has been battling the flu and a fever recently, fainted in the shower after the Blue Devils lost the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game Sunday.

Several dozen reporters were interviewing the Blue Devils in their steamy, cramped locker room at the Greensboro Coliseum when a loud thud was heard in the adjacent shower area. Forward Roshown McLeod, one of several players in the shower with Wojciechowski at the time, called for Duke’s medical staff, and the reporters were ordered out of the locker room.

``He just needed to be re-hydrated,″ team spokesman Tom Kosempa said about 15 minutes after the incident. ``He’s fine. There are no other major problems.″

Wojciechowski played 28 minutes in top-ranked Duke’s 83-68 loss to North Carolina. He had three points on 1-for-6 shooting and had a team-high five assists.
