Marvin Bagley: Out Sunday with knee sprain

Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski won’t be able to rely on star forward Marvin Bagley III against Georgia Tech on Sunday. More

Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski won’t be able to rely on star forward Marvin Bagley III against Georgia Tech on Sunday. More

Regular starter Wendell Carter Jr. controlled the paint in his hometown in Bagley's absence, swatting away four shots on defense and adding a double-double with 19 points and 10 boards.

No. 2 Miss. St. 74, Kentucky 55: Victoria Vivians scored 23 and Teaira McCowan had 21 points and 16 rebounds as the host Bulldogs (26-0, 12-0 SEC) ended the Wildcats 11-game winning streak in the series. Brown had nine assists.

Sophomore Josh Okogie was consistent and effective for the Yellow Jackets with 29 points, but Georgia Tech took a serious hit for Sunday's game and potentially for the rest of its season in the first half when second-leading scorer Jose Alvarado fouled Javin DeLaurier under the basket and fell to the ground hard on his left arm. The Blue Devils now rank 36th in effective field goal percentage allowed (0.471), while Georgia Tech is 316th in effective field goal percentage (0.475). With Georgia Tech next up on Sunday night, the Blue Devils will be without forward Marvin Bagley III due to a mild right knee sprain. North Carolina's 2.4 turnover percentage was their largest strength over Duke, who had a mark of 10.6.

The Yellow Jackets were routed 77-54 on Thursday night by Louisville and sit third-from-bottom in the ACC standings. Georgia Tech had to resort to deep perimeter possessions on most possessions and didn't make many of them until the final minutes. Contrary to Duke, Yellow Jackets games have a tendency to go under the total (60.0 percent).

Meanwhile, Georgia Tech owns records of 11-13 SU and 10-9-1 ATS.

After the Blue Devils won the only contest against the Yellow Jackets last season, 110-57, these teams will clash for the first time this year.

Georgia Tech is 7-4 ATS at home with 7 unders and 4 overs.

Trevon Duval answered with 3-pointer from the corner to quiet the crowd, and the Blue Devils held off the Yellow Jackets down the stretch. In his last five games, Carter Jr. has posted three double-doubles. The Duke Blue Devils have split their last eight road games.
