1. Duke Blue Devils (29-5)
With the plethora of talent on its roster, there is no reason for Duke to come up short. However, there are a few potential pitfalls for the Blue Devils. As seen in their loss to Gonzaga, the Dukies struggled from three. Injuries can also be a problem, as the team clearly wasn’t as good with Zion out. Duke won’t be tested until the Sweet 16 — at the earliest. Duke’s only loss this year at full-strength was to Gonzaga, and there is little reason to expect them to fall short now that Zion is back in the mix.
