However, Bagley, who has 21 double-doubles this season, did not grab a rebound during the first half of Duke's round of 16 game against Syracuse on Friday night in Omaha, Neb.

It was the first time this season that Bagley, who is averaging 21.2 points and 11.2 rebounds per game, did not get a rebound during the first half of a game.

Bagley scored nine points during the first half as the Blue Devils led 34-27 at the break.
