DURHAM, N.C. - Several former Blue Devils were involved in trades at the NBA trade deadline a few weeks back. J.J. Redick was involved in a six-player deal that sent the guard to the Milwaukee Bucks, while Josh McRoberts found a new home with the Charlotte Bobcats and Dahntay Jones is now with the Atlanta Hawks. In February, Gerald Henderson had perhaps his best month of the season as he scored in double figures in 11-of-12 games he played. Meanwhile, Elton Brand has been playing well since the All-Star break, scoring in double figures in five consecutive games to close the month of February.

Battier has scored in double figures in three of the last five games he has played, including two 14-point outings. In a narrow four-point win over the Cavaliers on Feb. 24, Battier was 4-of-7 from three and finished the contest with 14 points. In his next game, the 11th-year forward bettered his performance to 4-of-5 from beyond the arc on his way to a second consecutive 14-point game. Battier continues to shoot the ball well from the three-point line, as he ranks sixth in the NBA in field-goal percentage at 43.9-percent.
