The Merion, Pa. native picks up his second All-America honor of the season. He was named to the second team by Foxsports.com.

Duke finished the season with a 30-7 record and a trip to the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16. Henderson led the team in scoring at 16.5 points per game. He also ranked second in rebounding (4.9 rpg.) and assists (91) and third in blocked shots (28) and steals (46).

Henderson is one of 63 players to play in 100 career games at Duke. He is one of 59 players in school history to score over 1,000 career points, ranking 39th with 1,262 points. His 610 points this season rank as the 30th highest single season total by a Blue Devil.
