Marvin Bagley will return for Duke in Syracuse game

After missing four straight games with a knee sprain, Marvin Bagley will return to the floor for Duke on Saturday. Duke plays host to Syracuse (#GameOfZones) Saturday night.

The Blue Devils went 4-0 without Bagley — thanks to an invigorated defense, and outstanding performances from Grayson Allen and Wendell Carter.

As Mike Krzyzewski said after the win over Louisville this week, though, the addition of Bagley will be a welcomed one. The likely top-5 pick leads the ACC in points (21.2), rebounds (11.4) and free throw attempts (163).

Powered by Bagley and Carter, Duke is the No. 1 offensive rebounding team in the nation — snagging 39.9 percent of its own misses, per KenPom.
