There are very few coaches that recruits would choose to play for over Kentucky head coach John Calipari.
One such coach is Mike Krzyzewski.
Coach K is arguably the best college basketball coach of all time.
He has coached two national championship teams since 2001 and has not missed the tournament since 1995.
Coach K will be looking to rebound from a disappointing loss in Duke’s opening game against Lehigh.
This season, Coach K returns seniors Andre Dawkins, Seth Curry and Ryan Kelly.
This core of returning starters will also be joined by highly touted incoming freshmen Rasheed Sulaimon and Amile Jefferson. Both these players will see significant minutes from the beginning of the season.
Sulaimon’s versatility as a slasher and a shooter could allow him to bust into the starting five at some point this season.
Coach K will be looking to prove that Duke is better than what the nation saw in last years NCAA Tournament.
He returns a talented group of seniors and has two excellent freshmen entering the program.
Combining this great coach with these excellent players will make Duke a dangerous team this season.
John Calipari and Kentucky will want to avoid Duke in March if they want to retain their national championship.
