I figured our ceiling this year was a bubble team, and it probably still is.
But damn, it's nice to win games like the Richmond game or the USF game....both of which we would've blown or just flat out lost the past couple of years. This team doesn't have any stars, and maybe only a couple long-shot 3rd team All-ACC guys...but I like what I see so far.
I see Duke heading into ACC play with only 1 loss (Wisky).
They've looked pretty damn good so far this year, and not as one dimensional as so many Duke teams as of late. If Okafor is on, feed him. If he's not, Justise can drive. Not that? Okay, kick to Cook or one of the other 3 or 4 shooters for 3. The offense will be there for Duke, it's the consistency on the boards and defense that has to keep up if they've got title hopes this year.
Outside of UK, I think Duke has the most potential of anyone in the nation. Arizona/Wisky/UNC are right there as well, though.
