2017-18 ACC Basketball Preseason Predictions

It’s hard to believe that we’re only a few weeks away from the start of the 2017-18 college basketball season.

Following a wild offseason of arrests and scandals, it will be good to get back to a point where we can focus on what’s happening on the court instead of the shady under-belly of the sport.

As we get ready for what will hopefully be an exciting season for the Blue Devils, the team at Duke Report compiled our predictions and picks for the 2017-18 ACC season.
