THE OPENING TIP

  • Duke will play its first home game in 19 days on Saturday when it hosts NC State. The team went 2-1 on a recent three-game road stretch.
  • Duke leads the NCAA with a .827 (201-42) winning percentage since the start of the 2009-10 season and ranks third nationally with a .946 (105-6) home winnning percentage this decade.
  • Duke employs one of the nation’s most lethal offensive attacks, ranking 10th in the NCAA in scoring offense (84.7) and second the country in adjusted offensive efficiency (122.8).
  • Duke features two of the top five scorers in ACC play, as Grayson Allen (20.2) ranks second and Brandon Ingram (18.9) is fifth in league play.
  • Duke averages 8.9 three-pointers per game overall and 9.2 per game in ACC play, both of which lead the league. Duke is the only ACC school with three players (Allen, Ingram, Jones) shooting better than 40 percent from long range for the season (min. two made per game).
  • Allen is on pace to become just the ninth player to lead Duke in both scoring and assists in the same season. Nolan Smith was the last to do it in 2010-11.
  • Among ACC freshmen in all games this season, Ingram leads in double-doubles (5) and ranks second in scoring (17.0), three-point percentage (.411), rebounding (6.5) and blocks (1.6).
  • Luke Kennard leads the nation with a .920 free throw percentage, which would set a new Duke freshman record. Duke has made 396 free throws this season, the ninth-most among major conference teams.
  • Duke ranks 10th nationally in turnover average (10.1) and fifth in offensive turnover percentage (14.5). Matt Jones leads Duke with a 2.2 assist-to-turnover ratio.
