Duke has quietly built a one seed resume

A 32 point thrashing of rival North Carolina gave Duke a share of the ACC regular season title.The win also should give them a top seed in the NCAA tournament.The argument only becomes stronger if they win the ACC tournament.Even though everyone says the ACC is having a down year,you have to give the Blue Devils their due.Only because North Carolina tanked severely this season,everyone says the ACC is down and that maybe Duke shouldn't get a number one seed.I'm not the biggest Duke fan,but who else are you gonna put alongside Kansas,Kentucky,and Syracuse.Exactly.To me the ACC is still a formidable conference this year.Even though the mighty Tar Heels are down,the rest of the conference has stepped up its play this year.for the most part duke has taken everyone's best shot like always and is standing at the top of the hill.Also,Mike Krzyzewski has done this with limited depth.They've done this without a lot of hype and hoopla of past Duke teams.Don't hate on the Blue Devils.They deserve a number one seed and you know they'll be a tough out in the tournament like always.
