Duke's annual appearance in the NCAA tournament is about as sure a thing as there is in competitive sports.
This year is no exception, as the selection committee has seeded the Blue Devils third in the Midwest region, where they will play No. 14 Mercer on Friday.
The Blue Devils will be making their 19th consecutive tournament appearance and their 29th in 30 years under coaching legend Mike Krzyzewski.
The Blue Devils are coming off a 72-63 loss to Virginia in the ACC tournament finals.
Duke has won four titles under Krzyzewski, with their most recent championship coming in 2010.
