Here’s an article from NBCSports.com about the impact Trevon Duval is having for Duke so far and in particular after the win over Michigan State.
It’s worth remembering though that he might not have come to Duke if various other guys had taken his spot last year - or if Derrick Thornton hadn’t transferred.
Thornton would be a junior now and probably doing pretty well. However, he’s at USC now. So how’s he doing?
Well it’s only two games in so there’s only minimal data. But we can glean a few things.
First, he’s not starting. Second, he’s playing less. Again it’s only two games in, but when your starting PG is getting 30 mpg, you’re not going to play as much as you might like (he’s averaging 17 mpg).
You can look at his overall stats below. We’ll look in again later in the season to see how his USC career has developed.
On the other hand, Duval is starting and playing well. He’s averaging 10 apg and just 1.3 tpg.
Shooting is a weakness: Duval is hitting 48.6% and a lot of those are layups. He hasn’t hit a three yet (out of seven attempts).
That’ll come. For now, Duval has the keys to the fastest car around and he’s looking like a pretty good driver. Things sometime work out okay.
By the way, here’s an interesting stat:
Duval has 30 assists and four turnovers. Grayson Allen has six assists and two turnovers.
Gary Trent has seven assists and four turnovers.
Jordan Goldwire has four assists and three turnovers.
Add it up and Duke’s backcourt has 47 assists to 13 turnovers.
