Muhammad hearing from Duke, UNC

CHAPEL HILL - A frustrated Shabazz Muhammad said Saturday afternoon that his Dream Vision team has to find a way to play through injuries after a loss to the Smyrna (Ga.) Stars.

"I have a sprained ankle but I'm going to keep playing," Muhammad said. "There's no excuse for this loss."

Muhammad is a 6-foot-5 wing from Las Vegas who is rated No. 7 in the Class of 2012 by He has been offered scholarships by Texas, Kansas, UNLV, UCLA, Louisville, Georgetown, Arizona, Arizona State and Washington.

He's also being recruited by Duke, North Carolina and Kentucky, although those schools didn't offer scholarships. He had a sensational performance Friday night with 33 points in a win at Duke's Cameron Indoor Stadium, but scored just 10 (none in the second half) in the loss Saturday.

He visited Duke unofficially for the Blue Devils' home win over North Carolina.

"I really liked the atmosphere of the game," he said. "The crowd was crazy, and I'm looking forward to coming down there again."

But Muhammad didn't tip his hand as to which school he might favor at this point.
