In No. 2 Duke's latest installment of Freshmen Gone Wild, all three - and point guard Tre Jones - had starring roles Saturday night as the Blue Devils used an early barrage of 3-pointers to stun No. 3 Virginia, and then held off the Cavaliers, 81-71, to sweep the season series. The Blue Devils instead expanded their lead to 52-41 on the strength of three three-pointers from Cam Reddish as part of an 11-4 push, leading to a timeout by Bennett.
Reddish is now averaging 13.6 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.1 assists, and 2.1 steals per game, but it's the efficiency that the freshman wing has recently shot the ball with that strikes fear into opponents. "We all can do a mixture of everything and it just depends on who gets found, who's open and it's a simple as that".
Duke made five of its first eight shots after halftime, including three Reddish 3-pointers over the first five minutes, to push its lead back into double-digits. "But it was cool he was here", Krzyzewski said. "Not one guy, but they kind of took turns doing it". Ty Jerome, who averages 13 points and 4.9 assists per game for UVA, is questionable to play tonight due to a back injury.
Given how the two carved out time from their busy schedule to hit up Charlottesville for the game, it's fair to assume they were there scouting Duke star Zion Williamson.
The Blue Devils are certainly living up to their ranking.
RJ Barrett's six 3-pointers and five more from Reddish on Saturday night at Virginia helped erase that game plan.
