1. Duke Blue Devils (32-6)
Coach K will have yet another extremely talented roster this year, as he has the third-best recruiting class coming in. The freshmen class boasts three five-stars and one four-star–all of whom play a different position. Last year’s assist leader, Tre Jones, should be able to help guide this young team this year, especially early in the season. This is significant because of the potential of having four freshmen on the court at one time. Joey Baker, who only played in four games last season, will be stepping into a larger role this year and will likely be the team’s go-to shooter. The sophomore guard has had a great off-season thus far. Just how good can this team be? We will have a good idea after their opening night matchup with third-ranked Kansas.
