Duke basketball honor roll for Week 2 of ACC play

Wendell Moore Jr. – The Single Game Savior

After struggling off the bench in the previous few games, Wendell Moore Jr. showed up against Boston College on a mission to show the nation he’s still got it.

Moore put up 25 points, four rebounds, and three steals after going 8-for-13 from the field, including a clutch step-back two that could be argued as the game-winning shot.

In a matchup where Duke was down by 16 at one point, Moore was aggressive on both ends of the floor, giving the Blue Devils the energy they needed without Mike Krzyzewski on the sideline.

Matthew Hurt – Consistent Component

Matthew Hurt continues to lead the team in scoring, rebounds, and blocks so far this season, with 19.6 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 0.7 blocks per game.

Over the two-game homestand, Hurt averaged 21.5 points per game, even notching a double-double in the comeback win against Boston College.

He has been Duke’s most consistent component so far this season, proving to the conference he deserved a spot on a Preseason All-ACC Team.

Jon Scheyer – Honorable Mention

There was always a possibility of Coach K having to sit a couple of weeks out due to COVID-19, and the coaching staff alongside him proved ready for anything.

Jon Scheyer was able to remain calm and collected, coaching the team to a comeback win down the stretch. His efforts earned him an honorable mention on this week’s Duke basketball honor roll.
