He then went for 16 points in the second round, 18 points and 11 assists in the Sweet Sixteen and 21 points, six rebounds and six assists in Duke's loss to Michigan State in the Elite Eight.

"From start to finish, RJ was there every second", Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski said in a statement.

Barrett and Duke lost to Michigan State in the East Regional Final. Including Barrett's triple-double, there have only been four triple-double's in program history. "After discussing with my family and coaches, I've decided that I will be declaring for the 2019 NBA Draft".

"Having reclassified to come to Duke early, he's just so advanced for this stage of his career. he's a victor in every sense, and it was so special to have R.J.in our program".

"I really just want to thank the Crazies, thank the whole Duke community for everything you've given me", Barrett said. The NBA's fast-paced game fits in perfectly with Barrett's skillset as the young Canadian excels at attacking the basket. Thirteen of Duke's last 15 picks, and 20 of the last 25, have come in the first round, including 13 lottery picks.
