The Blue Devils are ranked second in the country after routing both Virginia Tech and North Carolina to finish the regular season with a 27-4 overall record and 14-4 mark in the ACC. Fox summarized Duke's weekly progression as:
"The Blue Devils have had three seasons within one. The 15-0 start before Ryan Kelly was injured, the 3-0 finish with Kelly back, and the time in between without him. The trio of Mason Plumlee, Seth Curry and Kelly will be tough to handle in the postseason."
Throughout the season the Blue Devils have moved up and down the power poll, ranking as high as number one and as low as 11th.
The only other team to appear in the top 25 was Miami, which ranked eighth in the country.
Gonzaga remained number one overall after rolling through the WCC tournament last week to finish the season 31-2 overall.
