TRENDING

  • No. 2 Duke returns to Cameron Indoor Stadium for three of its next four, beginning Saturday with Georgia Tech.
  • Saturday is the 96th meeting between ACC rivals and the Blue Devils have won 11 straight in the series versus the Yellow Jackets — Duke’s longest current ACC winning streak.
  • Duke is tied for first place in the ACC as one of five one-loss conference teams entering Saturday’s action.
  • Zion Williamson broke Duke’s single-game freshman scoring record with 35 points in the Syracuse game. He is second in the ACC in scoring (21.7) and is the nation’s only player averaging 20+ points and shooting .600+ from the field.
  • With Williamson missing the second half at Florida State (eye), Tre Jones missing all but six minutes of the last three games (shoulder), and Cam Reddish out versus Syracuse (illness), Duke has played 148 of the last 165 minutes without at least one starter and gone 3-1 in that stretch.
  • R.J. Barrett needs 71 points to reach 10th place on the single-season Duke freshman scoring list. He’s 264 points shy of Marvin Bagley III’s freshman record 694 points.
  • Barrett continues to lead the ACC in scoring at 23.9 points– ninth nationally and second among NCAA freshmen.
  • Barrett and Williamson have each scored 25+ points eight times to tie a Duke freshman record. They are the only pair of teammates in the NCAA each averaging 20+ points per game.
  • Freshman Cam Reddish has made nine three-pointers over the last three games. He has made more threes (42) than any other freshman in the ACC this season.
  • Duke is 5-1 versus teams ranked in the AP top 15 this season– the most games, and wins, of any team nationally.
