Duke fans are still trying to forget about the team's opening round loss to Lehigh last season. It was an abysmal performance by the Blue Devils and a disappointing way to end the season.

However, Mike Krzyzewski is known for always using experiences like that as something to learn from instead of forget.

This season, Duke is in a similar situation—receiving a No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament and coming off a loss in the ACC Tournament to face a mid-major from the Northeast.

But with a more experienced and balanced team, this year should produce a different result for the Blue Devils.

Let's look at five keys for Duke to avoid a Lehigh relapse against Albany.
