Without their two highest-ranked freshmen in town, the Blue Devils were at work in their practice facility, yielding a few released highlights on Tuesday evening showcasing locked-in 3-point weapons and creative slashers.

On that note, bear in mind that Flagg and Maluach each boasts a relatively smooth outside stroke for his position, not to mention what the 6-foot-9 phenom and 7-foot-2 giant add in the height department.

Despite their absence, the Blue Devils appear versatile on offense due to a wealth of bucket-finding guards and wings, all 6-foot-5 or taller with the ability to light it up from downtown.

Here's the first 35-second clip, including 3-point makes by junior guard Tyrese Proctor and graduate transfer guard Sion James, along with skilled moves and soft-touch scores inside the arc by several others:

Proctor and James each drain another three in the next batch of highlights:

The last half-minute clip of the day begins with a corner 3-pointer by graduate transfer forward Mason Gillis courtesy of an assist from James, who knocks down yet another three of his own 20 seconds later in the video:

Duke basketball's third campaign of the Jon Scheyer era is now less than four months away, as the Blue Devils' season opener is set for Nov. 4 when Maine comes to Cameron Indoor Stadium.
