Duke had the talent and the coach but in the end Lehigh got the 75-70 win.

Losing in the second round of the NCAA Tournament is bad enough, but it's even worse when you lose to a team from the Patriot League.

The Mountain Hawks were a good team this year, don't get me wrong. They compiled a 27-8 record and were led by C.J. McCollum, who averaged 22 points per game this season. They played the right game to beat Duke. They controlled the pace and had few wasted possessions. They knocked off arguably one of the best programs in the nation and do deserve all the recognition and praise that they are getting.

Duke, on the other hand, now has seven months to figure out how to improve upon this last season. It will have to deal with players leaving and new players coming in.

Coach Mike Krzyzewski and company have a few thing they must address following their early exit from the NCAA Tournament.
