It has happened. For the first time since February 13, 2007, Duke is no longer ranked in the Top 25.

What all have the Blue Devils done in that time frame?

  • Finished first in the ACC in 2010.
  • Won 3 straight ACC Tournament Championships (2009-2011).
  • Did not miss the NCAA tournament.
  • Made┬áthe Sweet 16 five times (2009, 2010, 2011, 2013, & 2015).
  • Advanced to the Elite 8 three times (2010, 2013, & 2015).
  • Made the Final Four twice (2010 & 2015).
  • Won the National Championship twice (2010 & 2015).
  • Gone 305-53 overall (115-35 in the ACC).
  • Had two ACC Player of the Year selections (2010-11 Nolan Smith, 2014-15 Jahlil Okafor).
  • Coach K broke the all-time wins record AND won his 1,000th game .
