2010 NCAA Tournament: Five Reasons Duke Is Destined to Win a National Title

The Duke Blue Devils are poised to become the 2010 college basketball national champions, even though they have not experienced success in March in quite some time.

Coach Mike Krzyzewski is one of the greatest coaches in basketball history, owning an NCAA-record 73 tournament victories to go along with 10 Final Four appearances in his career (third most all-time).

He has developed this year's edition of the Blue Devils into serious contenders for the national title and has had his players prepared to succeed since their first round game against play-in game winner Arkansas-Pine Bluff.

Duke has had its share of success during the season, sharing the ACC regular season title with the Maryland Terrapins and winning the ACC Tournament last weekend in Greensboro, but has not succeeded in March for the past few years.

That should change this tournament, as the Blue Devils have dominated their first two opponents by using outstanding defense and countering with a potent motion offense that can kill teams if they don't defend it properly.

There's no doubting Duke this March, and here are five reasons why the Blue Devils are destined to make it to Indianapolis and leave with the national championship under their belt.
