Seth Curry had been battling a nagging right shin injury since mid-September. It was serious enough that the medical staff thought he might miss his senior season. But Curry played through the stress reaction and became an all-American in the process.

Monday, he finally had that surgery on his right shin. He is expected to be out 10-12 weeks.

Plumlee and Curry headline coaches all-ACC team

Mason Plumlee and Seth Curry continued to add to their postseason awards collection when both were named to the inaugural coaches all-ACC team.

Plumlee was a unanimous selection along with Virginia's Joe Harris. Plumlee ranks second in the league in scoring (17.2 points per game), rebounding (10.2 boards per game) and field goal percentage (59.2 percent). He also ranks among the top five in blocked shots and minutes played. Earlier this month, the senior was named to the all-ACC team voted on by the media.

Plumlee was also a member of the coaches all-ACC defensive team.

With the release of the all-ACC teams, it's officially awards season. On that note, the Sporting News announced their all-America teams, and Duke's Seth Curry was a second-team selection.

Curry, who was also named ACC Player of the Week, ranks third in the ACC with 17.1 points per game and a .435 3-point shooting percentage. He's also second with 2.7 3-pointers per game and fifth with a .810 free throw percentage. Curry has scored at least 20 points in 16 games this season, including 11 of Duke's 18 ACC contests.

Due to a nagging right shin injury, Curry has rarely practiced this year. More on that in this story from last week.

Duke drops to No. 3; Seth Curry expected to play Thursday vs. Georgia Tech

Saturday’s loss at N.C. State cost Duke its top spot in the rankings, but the Blue Devils did avoid losing another key senior for an extended period of time.

Seth Curry suffered a slight left ankle sprain in Saturday's loss to N.C. State, but he should be ready to go for Duke's next game, head coach Mike Krzyzewski said on the weekly ACC coaches teleconference. Duke, now ranked No. 3 in the polls (15-1, 2-1 in the ACC) plays Georgia Tech (10-5, 0-3) Thursday at 9 p.m.

“There wasn't a lot of swelling after the game, and yesterday it looked pretty good,” Krzyzewski said. “He won't practice today, but unless something else happens, he'll be available for Thursday.”

Postgame: thoughts from Duke's 67-50 win over Davidson

CHARLOTTE—It's a baker's dozen worth of victories for No. 1 Duke to open the 2012-13 season. Check out the game story from the 67-50 win over Davidson. And below are a few more thoughts and notes:

***One game after scoring a Duke career-high 31 points against Santa Clara, Seth Curry went 3-for-11 from the field for just six points in front of his hometown Charlotte crowd. He did record a team-high three assists, though, which tied his season-high. Other than Mike Krzyzewski, Curry drew the loudest applause during pregame introductions.

“I got the shots that I wanted, but I just wasn’t able to knock them down,” Curry said. “Coming out of the gate, I was maybe pressing a little bit, trying to get my shot going. It didn’t really go early or anytime throughout the game. I got the shots that I wanted, that’s the biggest thing. I’ll bounce back Saturday.

***For the fourth game in a row, Duke appeared to come out sluggish, or at least not matching the standard set this season. After the game, Quinn Cook didn’t seem overly concerned that it would develop into a long-term trend.

Postgame: thoughts from Duke's 73-68 win over Ohio State

DURHAM—Another day, another win over a top-teams opponent for the Blue Devils. 

It's not even December, and Duke has beaten three top-five teams (then-No. 3 Kentucky, then-No. 2 Louisville and No. 4 Ohio State). That's a feat only three other Duke teams have accomplished in a season. The most recent team to beat three top-five squads in the same season was the 1998-99 Blue Devils (No. 2 Michigan State, No. 3 Kentucky, No. 4 Maryland).

Enough history, though. Here are a few points from Wednesday's win over Ohio State:

Heading into the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament, with its daunting three games in three days schedule, Duke wasn’t sure how much Seth Curry would be able to play.

Turns out, he was able to play quite a bit.

Curry, who is nursing a nagging right shin injury (it’s expected to bother him all year), played an average of 32.7 minutes per game. More than that, he played effectively, averaging a team-high 18 points per game. That scoring clip was also tied for third overall at the tournament.
