Bagley missed Sunday's game at Georgia Tech with a mild right knee sprain he suffered on February 8 in the Blue Devils' 82-78 loss at North Carolina.

The No. 12 Duke Blue Devils (20-5) have snapped two-game losing streak by beating Georgia Tech, 80-69. The school announced this past weekend that he would miss Sunday's game at Georgia Tech for precautionary reasons. Bagley III leads the ACC in scoring (21.2 points/game) and rebounding (11.4 rebounds/game). Starting with Virginia Tech tonight, it's time to see if this talented and vexing group has another gear.

Robinson (team highs with 13.8 ppg and 5.7 assists per game) has made a living of late getting to the basket off the dribble for layups, which means Duke will have heightened awareness of Robinson's ball-handling ability in the open floor and in the half-court.

Without Bagley, Duke will once again look to struggling senior Grayson Allen to carry a bigger load. Trevon also only racked up 1 turnover, in 25 minutes.

Home Entertainment has now released an English-language trailer offering another look at the gorgeous-and crazy-animated feature. There's quite a bit of talent behind Batman Ninja , and here's a quick description of who's involved from the Warner Bros .

"It seems like there's been more of an emphasis to really kind of take away drives", Duke assistant coach Jeff Capel said. Bagley sat out much of that game with an eye injury. "Try to hit it inside with Wendell (Carter Jr.) or Marques because we really feel like they're a very good post presence down there".

Bagley has been Duke's best player this season. Nothing conclusive came out of Durham, N.C., on Monday or Tuesday regarding Bagley's status, but Williams indicated Monday afternoon he expects Bagley to play.

Virginia Tech has visited Kentucky, Syracuse, Louisville and Virginia this season, so the array of venues has been massive. Bagley may play against Virginia Tech and all of this goes away. That was the ACC opener, with Allen sitting out a one-game team suspension for a tripping incident in the team's previous game.
