"It's a combination of things,'' Huggins said of Humphrey's absence of late. "I think the shoulder certainly has had something to do with it. And then, quite honestly, Keaton's played pretty well. Keaton's played well and Terry Henderson's played well. You've only got so many minutes.''
Anyone, though, who proves he can step in and shoot the ball will get more of those minutes. At this point, Huggins is open to anyone doing it.
"We've just got to continue to shoot the ball. They're going to start going in and then we'll get some confidence and we'll be fine,'' Huggins said. "I think everybody goes through this at some point during the season. It's just very rare that you go through it at the beginning of the season like we are.''

Much has changed for the Dukes since they fired coach Ron Everhart, who is now a West Virginia assistant. Three of Duquesne's top four scorers are freshmen - guards Derrick Colter (10.4) and Jeremiah Jones (7.3) and reserve forward Quevyn Winters (9.7). The leading scorer is 6-1 guard Sean Johnson (12.9).
"Voldy's just got to learn enough,'' Huggins said. "We're hoping to get him in some games here where he can start to learn. We've been spending a lot more time with him in practice. But it's a lot to learn in a very short period of time, particularly when you can't focus on him.''
