Duke’s Trevon Duval Sets Freshman Assist Record

Duke superstar freshman Trevon Duval has broken Duke’s freshman assist record through the team’s first two games, according to FrankieVision.com.

 

The 6-3 point guard has a whopping 20 assists to only one turnover so far this season after dishing out 12 dimes in the team’s 99-69 win over Utah Valley on Nov. 11, and 8 helpers in their 97-68 opening night victory against Elon.

 

“Trevon is 20 (assists) and one (turnover) in the first two games,” Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski told reporters. “When we get the ball, we can really change ends well. It reminds me of my teams in the early 1990s.”

 

And Duval’s teammates appreciate his exceptional passing ability.

 

“He makes the game a lot easier,” teammate Marvin Bagley III told dukechronicle.com of Duval. “He’s just a great point guard to play with. He looks for you every time you’re wide open, he’s looking in the post. He’s just making the right basketball plays and everybody feeds off of that.”

 

Duval said he’s having a ball.

 

“This is literally just a dream coming true right now,” Duval said. “I dreamed about playing at the highest level, playing for a great coach [and] winning.”

 

Duval, ESPN’s No. 6 ranked high school player in the 2017 class, averaged 16.2 points and 7.7 assists for powerhouse IMG Academy (FL) last year, leading the team to a 26-1 regular season record and the school’s first ever DICK’S Nationals tournament.

 

Oklahoma Rivals loves the athletic Duval’s game.

 

“The Dallas star is almost unstoppable off-the-dribble, as he can break down a defense and penetrate the lane at will,” the analysis reads. “[He] possesses the explosion for ferocious dunks at the rim as well.”
