  • Freshman Wendell Carter, Jr., also had a double-double in Thursday’s win. As a team, each of Duke’s nine double-doubles have come from freshmen.
  • Freshman Trevon Duval has set a career high in points in each of the last two games.
  • Head coach Mike Krzyzewski improved to 200-29 (.873) when coaching a No. 1-ranked Duke team. The 229 games when coaching at No. 1 are the most in NCAA history. John Wooden is second with 228.
  • Texas advanced to the PK80 semifinals with a 61-48 victory over Butler. The Longhorns are 4-0 to start a season for the first time since the 2014-15 campaign.
  • Texas has four players averaging more than 10 points per game. Freshman Mohamed Bamba is averaging a double-double with 11.3 points per game and 10.0 rebounds per game and is second in the country in blocks (4.8 bpg).
  • It will be the fifth all-time meeting between Duke and Texas, with the Blue Devils winning each meeting on neutral courts.
  • The most recent match-up came in the 2009 NCAA Second Round in Greensboro – a 74-69 win behind 24 points from Gerald Henderson.
