    Kentucky was #3 to start last season with freshmen phenoms coming in. It will be interesting to see if Dook follows a similar path.

    Like when they predicted that Kentucky was the #3 team in the country last year preseason?

    Duke has NOTHING to do with Kentucky. We do not rely on 5 true freshman and we certainly have a MUCH better coach that would never allow a freefall like what happened to UK last year.

    We have experience, returning starters, depth, then McDonalds All Americans. Not the other way around

    You lost your top three scorers and have an untested big man. You have every chance to either succeed or fall on your face. No one will know until the season is over.

    Like every team, you're going to lose players every season. Additionally, the returning cast gets better over the summer. Duke gets picked high every year because every year the analysts see marked improvement by the returning players and this year will be no different. But despite the returning players, Duke's two best this year are Hood and Parker who aren't even returning players. However, I think Sulaimon will have something to say about that. The other factor which shouldn't be taken for granted is Coach K's coaching and his master ability to modify and formulate the best game plan for the roster he has on hand.
