Duke will rely on Derryck Thornton Jr. and Luke Kennard -- two five-star guards from the Class of 2015 -- this season in the back court, playing alongside Grayson Allen and Matt Jones.

On Thursday night, Thornton, the only true point guard on the roster, cleared the 6-foot-5 Kennard for a one-handed dunk. The right hand may have helped Thornton complete the slam, but it’s still impressive athleticism for floor general known for his high IQ.

Earlier this offseason, Brandon Ingram, the team’s top incoming freshman, showed off his hops in vertical jump testing, leaving his teammates stunned.

Duke opens the 2015-16 season on Nov. 13 against Siena.
