Duke freshman Marvin Bagley III to return after four-game absence

Dukewill have its top scorer back in the lineup for Saturday's game against Syracuse, as Marvin Bagley III will be available to play, the school announced.

The freshman forward had missed the Blue Devils' past four games -- all wins -- with a right knee sprain that he suffered in the first half against North Carolina on Feb. 8.

Coach Mike Krzyzewski had described Bagley's injury as a "day-to-day thing."

Bagley, a likely top-five pick in June's NBA draft, leads the ACC with 21.2 points and 11.4 rebounds per game this season.
