If Brains and Wins have anything to do with March Madness, the Blue Devils take the tournament for the second year in a row. We tallied the basketball player grad rates and win rates over the last 6 years and came up with a Student Athlete Score for each school. The winner? Duke University. The two highest scoring schools in the tournament were Duke and Kansas.
