Marshall Plumlee turned in an excellent game for the Duke Blue Devils on Wednesday. He finished with 17 points and 10 rebounds. He even broke a tie in the final minutes and scored the eventual game-winning bucket in a 92-89 Duke win.
And he did it despite having his nose broken earlier in the game.
Plumlee caught a glancing elbow from a teammate on a rebound and this was the result.
That is ... ouch. While he received medical treatment, there is only so much a trainer can do on the bench for a broken nose. That didn't stop Plumlee, who checked back into the game moments later and then scored the go-ahead put-back a little more than six minutes later.
And just in case you thought it looked worse than it actually was, Mike Krzyzewski confirmed the nose was broken.
