Team Analysis  
 
1. Importance Very important   Duke men's basketball is one of the pre-eminent teams in the NCAA Divison 1. They have won three national championships under the coaching of legendary Mike Krzyzewski (aka Coach K). Understanding their relative strength and position within the ACC and National Championships is very important.
2. Wisdom Important   Duke is a perennial conference leader, and high seed in the National Championship tournament. When they play in the East part of the bracket, they do best.
3. Knowledge Important   Against the top teams, Duke needs to score more than 80 pts, and keep their opponents to less than 80.
4. Current Assessment Awesome   The Duke Blue Devils have all the tools to win their 4th national championship. In the big games, it will come down to their three point shooting proficiency, and offensive and defensive rebounding. They need to play an uptempo game and score more than 80 pts.
5. Future Assessment Awesome   With Coach K at the helm, Duke will forever be a perennial contender for the national championship.
6. Risk Very Low   The Duke men's basketball program is managed in an exemplary way. It is a model for other schools. They do not have injury or health issues, and their players maintain a high caliber of integrity.
7. Practice Plan Assigned   Like any top team, what Duke needs to practice is both defending and scoring against teams with big men at the forward and center positions.
8. Game Plan Key   For Duke to win at any level, they need to have an uptempo game, score at least 6 three point shots, cause turnover and get defensive rebounds to feed their fast break.
9. Winning Probability 80%   Duke has as good a chance as any of the top teams to win the 2012 national championship.
