Redshirt junior battled knee problems throughout Dukes career

Duquesne forward/center Rodrigo Peggau (Sao Paulo, Brazil/The Patterson (NC) School) will be completing his undergraduate degree in corporate communication in August and will not return to the team in 2011-12.

Peggau, a rising redshirt junior who will add minors in Spanish and sociology, is the second Duquesne player to complete his undergraduate coursework in under four years under Everhart, joining Bill Clark who played this past season as a graduate student.

Peggau, who battled knee problems throughout his stay at Duquesne, averaged 2.0 points and 2.1 rebounds in 44 career games. He underwent arthroscopic right knee surgery in September of 2008, prior to playing in the first four games of his freshman season. That season ended prematurely when he opted for right knee surgery in December.

He came back to see action in 28 of 32 games in 2009-10 - his first full season of basketball since 2006-07. Last year, as a redshirt sophomore, he saw action in 12 games.

“I enjoyed my time at Duquesne,” said Peggau. “I’m grateful for the experiences I’ve had and very thankful for all of the support I received over the past three years. I had the opportunity to develop relationships I’m sure will last a lifetime. I’m proud to be a graduate of Duquesne University.”

Peggau plans to enroll at Seton Hill University this fall where he will continue his college playing career while working toward a master’s in business administration.
