DURHAM, N.C. – Following a career performance in Duke’s win over Florida State, freshman forward Marvin Bagley III has been named the ACC Rookie of the Week for the fourth time this season. Bagley was also named Duke’s Student-Athlete of the Week.
Bagley reached the 30-point mark (32) for the third time this season, while setting a Duke freshman record with 21 rebounds as the rookie led then-No. 4 Duke past No. 24 Florida State, 100-93, Saturday at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Bagley’s performance was the first 30-20 game by a Duke player under Mike Krzyzewski and just the fourth 30-15 game under Coach K – Bagley has three of them this season, with Christian Laettner the other.
It stands as the seventh 30-20 game in school history, the first at Duke in 48 years, and the first by an ACC freshman. His 11 offensive rebounds in the game were also a Duke freshman record, and he tied Duke’s freshman record with 13 made field goals. Among all Duke players, Bagley’s 21 rebounds were the second-most at Cameron Indoor Stadium in the Coach K era (22 by Miles Plumlee vs. Maryland in 2012) and tied for 12th-most in a game in school history.
