Josh Hairston, Duke
Hairston played quite possibly the two finest games of his Duke career last week, scoring 11 points in contests against Maryland and Virginia Tech while shooting while shooting 8-of-11 from the floor. That doubled the amount of double figure scoring games he had in his three-year career. Hairston played so well against the Terrapins that Mike Krzyzewski inserted him into the starting lineup, a spot he could hold until Ryan Kelly returns. At that point, Hairston will provide Duke with something it didn’t have before Kelly’s injury: depth. But first, he must continue to produce at this elevated level.
Mason Plumlee needs one more rebound to reach 1,000 for his career. Plumlee would be the eighth Blue Devil to reach that mark and the third with 1,000 points, 1,000 rebounds and 150 blocks…. Duke is 13-0 in Cameron Indoor Stadium with three home games remaining. There have been 16 undefeated seasons in Cameron, including nine under Krzyzewski, the last of which came in 2010-11.
