I’m not going to say that Duke is going to be Oregon, nor will I say that they’re definitely going to get shellacked. However, as I give my final thoughts, allow me to impart what I’ve observed from this team thus far.
Duke is this year and always will be a special basketball program. That’s just the culture that Mike Krzyzewski has built there. Win or lose, you know that his teams are going to give their all and leave everything out on the court. Even if the Blue Devils get blown out, you know that the players are going to have given their maximum effort.
Which is why that for some reason or another, as easy as it is to hate on Duke, it’s even harder to count them out to make a deep run when the odds are stacked against them. Needless to say, tomorrow’s game should offer plenty of drama.
