Duke Basketball: Can Blue Devils Survive Without Marvin Bagley III?


Bagley sat out Sunday's win over Georgia Tech with a sprained right knee, which he suffered in last Thursday's loss at North Carolina. He also sat out the Blue Devils' 80-69 victory on the road against Georgia Tech this past Sunday. A teammate said that Bagley had not practiced with the team as they prepared to host Virginia Tech in Cameron on Wednesday.

Bagley is leading Duke in scoring (21.2 points) and rebounds (11.4) per game. Virginia Tech vs Duke tv channel is on ESPN2.

Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said Duval had his best performance in a couple of weeks, but didn't indicate whether the guard's role will change. A trip to Duke is often unique.
