DURHAM, N.C. (WNCN) – Duke freshman R.J. Barrett will enter his name in the 2019 NBA Draft.
Barrett was the only Blue Devil to start all 38 games this season for Duke.
He broke both the Duke and ACC freshman scoring records with 860 points, and finished with the second most points by a Duke player in a single season, trailing only the 941 points by J.J. Redick in his 2006 senior campaign, the school announced.
“From start to finish, RJ was there every second,” said head coach Mike Krzyzewski. “He played the most minutes, broke scoring records and was consistently excellent. He became one of our best defensive rebounders, and was close to triple-doubles quite a bit because of his scoring, rebounding and assists.”
Fellow freshman Tre Jones announced earlier this week he would return to play his sophomore year.
