Kyle Jarred “Flip” Filipowski as we all know is an American college basketball player for the Duke Blue Devils of the Atlantic Coast Conference (ACC). Recently (on 16 March 2023) during the Blue Devils NCAA Tournament opener against Oral Roberts, he was seen leaving the floor in the first half with stomach issues. Yet, he came back into the game and finished the first half with two points. This scene was not the first time he lost his lunch at a game. Earlier on a January 23rd tournament against Virginia Tech, Kyle it happened the same. His fans of course have never left him alone in these tough times. They have never stopped calling him their big-time warrior man. And undoubtedly, his family also have been there for him always, through all this.
