Duke is never an easy team to judge. The Blue Devils always appear to have the talent to be great, but in recent years the team has struggled to put it all together at times. At times they struggle, but at others, they go on incredible runs, as seen in 2010 when the team won it all.
This year the team brings in two high-profile recruits in SG Rasheed Sulaimon and SF Amile Jefferson, who will play big roles alongside players like Seth Curry, Mason Plumlee, Ryan Kelly and others.
However, the point guard position is still in question, as Quinn Cook has yet to truly take over, and Tyler Thornton is still stealing quite a few minutes from him. It's tough to make deep runs in March without consistency in the offense, and the two could pose problems if they are still sharing time during the tournament.
Another question mark is the big men, Mason Plumlee has the chance to be a star, and Ryan Kelly is a 6'11" forward with range, but he has a tendency to disappear at times.
This team is really up in the air, but the potential is there to be great. If coach Mike Krzyzewski can get the most out of his team when it matters most the team could be hoisting another banner to the rafters of Cameron Indoor Stadium.
There's also a chance of another embarrassing loss like that to Lehigh last season.
