Duncan continued to face criticism Monday over reported remarks that seemed to dismiss “white suburban moms” for opposing higher academic standards. Duncan has consistently shown little patience for critics of the Common Core State Standards, being implemented in 45 states and the District of Columbia. But his remarks, as reported by Politico, went a step further and add elements of race and class.  (AP Photo/Susan Walsh)

United States Secretary of Education Arne Duncan is a very impressive basketball player, and during the NBA Celebrity All-Star Game on Friday, Feb. 14, he backed up the hype.

In the fourth quarter, as he was about to get double-teamed, Duncan decided to get fancy with a pass to Tulsa Shock point guard Skylar Diggins, finding her for the score. You can see a video of the play below.

 

It's quite apparent that the former Harvard basketball co-captain has serious basketball skills, recording a double-double with 20 points, 11 rebounds and six assists while taking home the game's MVP award after Kevin Hart, the fans' choice, gave it up.
