Duke will be without the services of superstar freshman Marvin Bagley III when it takes on Louisville Thursday night in Durham.
Bagley leads the ACC in both scoring (21.2 ppg) and rebounding (11.4 rpg). He suffered a sprained right knee during the first half of Duke’s loss to North Carolina on Feb. 8 and has missed the Blue Devils’ last three games.
Duke is 3-0 playing without Bagley, knocking off Georgia Tech (89-69), Virginia Tech (74-53) and Clemson (66-57). Sophomore forward Javin DeLaurier started in Bagley’s place in Duke’s last game.
