Duke has three returning starters from last year's team in Seth Curry, Mason Plumlee and Ryan Kelly. Quinn Cook, Tyler Thornton and Josh Hairston will all be back as well.
Those six players alone make up a good team, but Duke will also be bringing in some very impressive talent. Redshirt freshmen Alex Murphy and Marshall Plumlee, along with incoming freshmen Rasheed Sulaimon and Amile Jefferson will be new additions to the team.
Curry, Mason Plumlee and Kelly are guaranteed starters at this point. Together, these three players averaged 36.1 points per game last year. Austin Rivers led the team in scoring last season, but these three players were right behind him.
The other two positions could be filled by just about anyone on this team. Cook and Murphy will likely start the season off in the starting five, but Sulaimon, Jefferson and Thornton will be getting a lot of playing time. Once Marshall Plumlee returns from an injury, he will make an impact on this team as well.
Although Duke is usually a three-point shooting team, it will have plenty of talent in the front court this season. Mason Plumlee will lead the charge, since he did average 11.1 points per game and 9.2 rebounds per game last season and all.
There is a good player at every position for Duke this season.
