What you need to know about Duke
The Blue Devils beat the Kentucky Wildcats 79-71 on Tuesday. Duke can attribute much of its success to Paolo Banchero, who had 22 points along with seven rebounds, and Trevor Keels, who finished with 25 points. The Blue Devils were victorious despite a dreadful shooting game from deep as they shot just 1-for-13 (7.7 percent) from beyond the arc.
Duke's top returning scorer is Wendell Moore Jr., who averaged 9.7 points and 4.8 rebounds per game last season. Banchero and Keels are two of the three five-star freshmen that are a part of the incoming class, along with forward AJ Griffin. The team also welcomes graduate transfer Theo John, who spent the last four years at Marquette and led the Big East in blocks during the 2018-19 season.
