Duke’s matchup with NC State in the second round of the 2016 ACC Tournament was one for the books and although the Blue Devils narrowly escaped with a win, they didn’t do so without any injuries.
Around midway through the 2nd half, center Marshall Plumlee broke his nose when he was accidentally elbowed by teammate Matt Jones.

Coach K confirmed the injury in his post game press conference and spoke about Plumlee’s toughness, but said he doesn’t know if Marshall will have to wear a mask.
Duke will play Notre Dame in the ACC Tournament quarterfinals Thursday afternoon.
