After overachieving in the regular season the Blue Devils were a huge disappointment in the NCAA tournament losing to 15th seed Lehigh. Their best player Austin Rivers also departs to the NBA.

One thing is for sure you can never count out a Coach K team; he will always get the most out of his team.
This Duke team will have a very strong frontcourt led by two senior starters. Leading the way is Mason Plumlee (11.1...

So where does Duke go from here?
The top-ranked team in the land a week ago, the Blue Devils now find themselves looking up in the ACC standings and without one of their best players, Ryan Kelly, for the foreseeable future.

Richard Howell scored 16 points, and 18 rebounds with most of his rebounds coming in the second half after Duke surprisingly dominated the glass in the first...
By Duke of Hoops – After Duke lost to NC State on Saturday, it was certain they would lose their #1 ranking. Then Michigan went and lost to Ohio State the next day. That put some doubt in the heads of some AP voters that Duke should fall from the top spot.
