Duke's basketball team has a shot to win the NCAA tournament. The men's team has already won its first round, and faces a Yale team that is not known for being a basketball powerhouse. The team had a good season, with a 24-10 record, and are a well coached group.
Yes, Duke can go all the way in the NCAA tournament, because their coach knows how to coach. Even when Duke isn't ranked the highest, they know how to compete. Their competitive fire allows them to compete in clutch situations. They are familiar with winning, and they allow this winning tradition to take them all the way in the tournament, year after year.
No, I do not think that Duke can go all the way in the tournament because Duke has lost a lot of basketball games this year and this team is one of Coach K's weakest teams in the last couple of years. Although Duke has top players in Grayson Allen, Brandon Ingram and Marshall Plumlee, I believe that they will end up losing in the 2nd round or Sweet 16.
Duke basketball has no chance to win the NCAA basketball tournament because it seriously lacks any depth off the bench. A couple of games during the regular season demonstrated as much when various starters got in foul trouble and had to leave the game. Duke was unable to compensate for the loss of those starters. In a field as tough as the NCAA tournament, that will not work.
