College Basketball Preview: 1. Duke Blue Devils

With Kyle Singler, Coach K's squad has a legit shot at repeating.

Duke Blue Devils Notable Losses: C-PF Brian Zoubek, G Jon Scheyer Key Returnees: G Nolan Smith, F Kyle Singler

Duke doesn't look a lot different after it's title win over Butler. They have a loaded backcourt despite the loss of Jon Scheyer. Nolan Smith, Kyle Singler and Andre Dawkins return. New freshman guard Kyrie Irving fill soften the loss of Scheyer. New transfer Seth Curry could even be better than his brother, Stephen. Size will be more an issue especially after the loss of both Brian Zoubek and Lance Thomas. New recruits Joshua Hariston will hopefully solve that issue. If the Blue Devils get productive play from new additions Irving and Curry they have a realistic shot at repeating.

ACC Rank: 1st
Last Season Result: 35-5, Beat Butler in National Championship
Key Recruits:G Kyrie Irving(9+), F Joshua Hariston(49+), G Tyler Thornton(129+)
