It's hard to say how good North Carolina will be next season, since it will have to replace a player at just about every single position. If Stickland and McDonald can come back and perform like they know how to, the rest of the nation better watch out. However, players like McAdoo and Paige really need to step up for this team.
Besides losing as a No. 2 seed in the first round of the NCAA tournament, we all know what the Blue Devils are capable of.
Kelly and Curry are lights out from anywhere on the court and both players will play huge roles for Duke this season. Curry must step up as the leader for this team though. Like I stated earlier in the article, Amile Jefferson is a great addition to the team, but as the season progresses another great addition will be Rasheed Sulaimon. If no one steps up at the point guard position, Sulaimon will take over.
Both of these teams will have good seasons, but Duke's starting five gets the nod entering the 2012-2012 college basketball season.
Advantage Duke's starting five
