THE OPENING TIP

  • Duke continues a busy stretch of four games in the season’s first week, welcoming Southern University to Cameron Indoor Stadium Friday night.
  • The Blue Devils have won 134 consecutive non-conference home games — the nation’s longest active streak. The next longest streak in the NCAA is Baylor (44).
  • Senior guard Grayson Allen scored a career-high 37 points in Tuesday’s 88-81 win over No. 2 Michigan State in the Champions Classic.
  • Allen leads the NCAA with 17 made three-pointers and his 65.4 percentage is tops in the NCAA (min. 15 made 3FGs).
  • Freshman guard Trevon Duval leads the nation with 30 assists, while his +7.50 assist-turnover is also tops in the NCAA (min. 20 assists).
  • Duval has posted back-to-back double-doubles — 15 points, 12 assists versus Utah Valley and 17 points, 10 assists versus Michigan State.
  • Freshman forward Marvin Bagley III became Duke’s first freshman to post double-doubles in each of his first two collegiate games. The rookie also matched the Duke record held by Jabari Parker for most points by a freshman over the first two games of a career (49).
  • Duke will play its 153rd game as the No. 1 team in the AP poll since 1998. That figure is 73 more games than the next closest school (Kentucky) during that time frame.
