Duke's Marvin Bagley to miss third consecutive game Sunday with knee sprain
Bagley is leading the Blue Devils in scoring and rebounding
The program announced that Bagley, the Blue Devils' leader in scoring and rebounding this season, is recovering from a mild right knee sprain he sustained during the first half of the Duke-North Carolina game on February 8. Duke has gone 2-0 with wins over Virginia and Tech and Georgia Tech in his absence.
The 6-foot-11 star entered the season as a projected top-3 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, and he's done nothing to prove he's not worthy of the No. 1 overall pick. Bagley leads the ACC averaging 21.2 points and 11.4 rebounds per game this season, leading Duke to a 21-5 record and, likely, a top 3 seed in the NCAA Tournament at worst.
The Blue Devils are a No. 2 seed in Jerry Palm's latest Bracketology facing projected No. 3 seed Clemson on Saturday.
