It's no surprise that the Duke Blue Devils are off to another good start in 2011.
The No. 4 ranked Blue Devils are 7-0 to start the year, and have already beaten three quality opponents. All too often in college basketball, the top teams seem to schedule easy wins until conference play. On the contrary, in the Maui Invitational alone, the Blue Devils knocked off the Michigan Wolverines and Kansas Jayhawks. Both of these teams are ranked in the top 15 in the standings.
It doesn't get any easier, as the No. 2 ranked Ohio State Buckeyes are up next! The Blue Devils travel to Columbus tomorrow night at 9:30 PM EST.
This game will be a huge test for both teams obviously, but it isn't a must win. Luckily, this isn't college football, so we can enjoy a game between two of the nation's best college basketball teams without it destroying one of their seasons.
Sorry Duke haters, this team is on the fast track to another No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament.
Let's take a look at 10 reasons the Blue Devils will be so tough to beat going forward.
