Duke will go into the 2014-15 season with high expectations. After a season of great parity—where the No. 1 ranked team in the country kept getting upset—the upcoming season looks to be one that'll be dominated by a handful of supremely talented teams.
Duke will be among those elite teams. A great recruiting haul combined with promising returning underclassmen and defensive-minded seniors make Duke an NCAA title contender.
But the first step toward a national championship is a strong showing in the conference. For that reason, Duke fans hoping for a deep run in March should expect either an ACC regular season or ACC tournament title.
