Duke begins its pursuit of a second National Championship in as many seasons in just a few weeks.
While the Blue Devils return an abundance of talent this season, they are also integrating new talent as well as a completely new system.
Duke is big and fast and are expected to run the floor on both ends. Expect a lot of pressure on defense and a blistering pace on offense.
Given Duke's new improved depth at guard, it should come as no surprise that Duke's system is guard-oriented. But don't forget Miles and Mason Plumlee, who are expected to have a solid to breakout season.
This is a look at each of the ingredients and how they figure to play into Duke's plan this season.
