Team spokesman Mike DeGeorge said Bagley would sit out Wednesday night's game against Virginia Tech. "So we'll be stressed from the beginning on how to at least be in a position to get a stop".

Duke labeled the injury as a mild right knee sprain. He finished with 8 points and grabbed 6 rebounds in 25 minutes.

It'll require a different kind of approach than Tech had against N.C. State and U.Va., which saw the Hokies focus on shutting down drives to the basket and forcing perimeter shots.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book YouWager, the Blue Devils are now 11.5-point home favorites to beat the Hokies on Wednesday night.

"I think they could have scored more", the Virginia Tech coach said.

Against Duke, Tech will have to contend with strong guard play by Grayson Allen (14.6 ppg), Gary Trent (15.1 ppg), Trevon Duval (11.1 ppg) and Alex O'Connell.

The answer is yes, but the Blue Devils basically have to play a ideal game.

Amazon Moves to Launch Its Own Delivery Fleet
In 2017, they threw down $1.4B toward the development of an air freight hub that will soon support 100 planes and 2.7k employees. While entering the shipping and delivery space seems the most logical move for Amazon, it will not be a simple exercise.

On the season, Duke basketball averages 88.8 points, 42.6 rebounds and 18.4 assists per game.

But in the second half, he went long stretches without taking a shot.

He's also been adept at getting teammates involved. (13.0), Ahmed Hill (12.8), Nickeil Alexander-Walker (11.4) and Chris Clarke (8.6). One alarming aspect of Robinson's game at U.Va.?

Bagley has been Duke's best player this season. "Just everything that an elite point guard does, he's doing that". Duke vs Virginia Tech live stream is on WatchESPN. She went 13 of 20 from the field, knocking down three 3-pointers.

"The ambiance at Duke, an incredibly tough place to win", Williams said. Two, he was out for five weeks and he's still not in game condition.

The Duke bench has gotten more minutes over recent games, and without Bagley, Coach K will need to rely more on his reserves. Allen scored 23 points, including 10-of-10 from the free-throw line against the Yellow Jackets on Sunday.
