9-1, 1st in ACC

Jeff Goodman ESPN Insider 

Duke's Luke Kennard was playing great in offseason, but with addition of Jayson Tatum and Frank Jackson, there was concern with how many minutes he would get on the court. His father, Mark, admitted he wasn't sure how much he would play this year and Luke said he never would have thought he would be Blue Devils leading scorer at this point. Kennard has also caught eye of NBA guys. "He's definitely not just a shooter," one told me last night.

Luke Kennard continues to put so much pressure on the defense. Can pull-up quickly, find guys with the pass, bury deep jumpers. Been great this season.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Jayson Tatum had a lot of success in high school in the mid-post and on the block. Just worked Justin Leon for an easy finish.
