This past season as a junior for the Duke Blue Devils, Jeremy Roach averaged 13.6 points, 2.5 rebounds, and 3.1 assists per game. HE paired those numbers with a field goal percentage of 42.6 percent and a three-point percentage of 24.3 percent. Roach was one of the better point guards in the ACC last season and helped keep the team afloat during their rough patch. He was also vital in the team’s run in both the 2023 ACC Tournament and the 2023 NCAA Tournament. While Duke was already considered an early favorite for next season, this could land them in the number-one spot in the fall.
