Everybody’s No. 1 college basketball team for 2016-17 has named its three captains.
Duke announced today that Amile Jefferson, Matt Jones and Grayson Allen will serve as captains for the Blue Devils’ 2016-17 squad.
Jefferson, a fifth-year senior, returns to Duke after missing most of the previous season with a leg injury. Jones started all 35 games in 2015-16, averaging 10.4 points, 2.5 rebounds and 2.2 assists a contest. Allen, a potential preseason All-American, opted to return to his junior season after flirting with the NBA.
