Chris Duarte has begun receiving some well-earned recognition. 

Jon Rothstein of College Hoops Today released his 2020-21 All-American Teams listing Duarte on the third-team.

Rothstein has been one of Duarte's most vocal supporters among national media members who have largely ignored this year's Oregon team despite them being one win away from going back-to-back as Pac-12 regular-season champions.

On the season, Duarte has put up a Pac-12 Player of the Year worthy senior season averaging 17.4 points on 53.6% from the floor, 44.1% from three, and 80% from the free-throw line. 

He has even risen his draft stock to the early first-round according to various experts.
