I've mentioned this before, but it may be worth noting again: despite the 2021 Duke team's lack of a traditional drive-and-dish PG, the team managed to get plenty of assists. The 2021 team had the 2nd-highest assist% and 2nd-highest assists per game of all Duke teams in the past 19 years. This is especially true once Mark Williams started playing a bigger role in our offense. In the games in which Mark played 10+ minutes, the team averaged 17.8 assists per game, which for a full season would be the 4th-highest apg ever for a Duke team under Coach K.
