Duke’s Bagley Named ACC Rookie of the Week

Marvin Bagley III Duke Rookie of the Week
GREENSBORO, NC – Duke freshman Marvin Bagley III earned ACC Rookie of the Week honors for the fourth time.
ACC basketball weekly honors are determined by a vote of a 15-member media panel.
Bagley reached the 30-point mark for the third time this season (32), while setting a Duke freshman record with 21 rebounds in leading  the No. 2 Blue Devils past No. 24 Florida State, 100-93. The Phoenix native became the first freshman in ACC history to register a 30/20 game. His 11 offensive rebounds in the game were also a Duke freshman record, and he tied the school’s freshman record with 13 made field goals.
Bagley’s 21 rebounds were the second-most by any Blue Devil at Cameron Indoor Stadium in 38 years under head coach Mike Krzyzewski (22 by Miles Plumlee versus Maryland in 2012) and tied for 12th-most in a game in school history. Bagley currently ranks as the ACC’s leading scorer (21.9 ppg) and rebounder (11.6 rpg). He is second in the NCAA in doubles-doubles (11) and is the nation’s second-leading freshman scorer and rebounder.
Bagley’s performance was the first 30/20 game by any Duke player under Krzyzewski and just the fourth 30/15 game under Coach K. Bagley has three of those (34/15 versus Texas; 30/15 versus Florida prior to Saturday), along with Christian Laettner (33/16 versus Maryland in 1992). Bagley’s performance against FSU on Saturday stands as the seventh 30/20 game in school history and the first in 48 years.
