With the Duke Basketball schedule now set for the 2013-14 season, and tickets for Countdown to Craziness on sale, I decided to try to tackle predicting each game for the Blue Devils. This is nearly impossible because of the unpredictable nature of injuries and off-court issues, but it’s still a fun activity for the painfully long offseason. The following is a look at how I think the regular season will play out for Duke.[table id=47 /]
Overall, I see the Blue Devils starting the season on a 13-game winning streak. They’ll suffer their first loss at the hands of an ACC opponent and will go 14-4 in conference, finishing first in the regular season. Going into the ACC Tournament, Duke will have an overall record of 27-4, and should be ranked as one of the Top 5 teams in the country (if not the #1 team in the country).
What do you think? Where do you see some potential stumbling blocks for the team? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
