RJ Barrett (2019) and Shelden Williams (2006) are the other Duke players who have accomplished this feat under coach K. However, Williams’ triple double included blocks rather than assists.
The 5-star freshmen duo of Paolo Banchero and Trevor Keels were impressive again, too. Banchero scored 18 points and grabbed a game-high 12 rebounds. Keels scored 10 points and continued to play excellent defense.
Jeremy Roach was the other Duke player to score in double figures, adding 14 points. He also dished out 4 assists, which was good enough for second on the team.
It’s a quick turnaround from here for the Blue Devils, who will host Campbell at 8 p.m. ET on Saturday night.
