DURHAM, N.C.— In the last contest at Georgia Tech, Duke redshirt freshman Mikayla Boykin dished a career-high 11 assists, which tied a Blue Devil freshman record.
It was the most assists by a Duke rookie since Feb. 2, 1980, when Patti Thomasson dished 11 dimes against Appalachian State. A Duke rookie has dished 10 or more assists a total of seven times in school history. Other rookies to accomplish this were Thomasson, Alexis Jones, Abby Waner, Wanisha Smith and Krista Gingrich.
The 11 assists are the most by an ACC freshman this season.
Duke will next host Miami Thursday, Jan. 15 at 7 p.m., in Cameron Indoor Stadium. The contest will air live on ACC Network Extra.
