Will Duke win the national championship?

Duke's prodigious freshman class got its first real test passed with flying colors. The Blue Devils destroyed No. 4 Kentucky, riding a talented group of first-year players, and many are already seeing a national championship in this team's future. Still, many teams look great in November only to falter later in the year. It's too early to determine a champion. What do you think? 🏀

If you watched Duke obliterate Kentucky, you would understand why this team is destined for greatness. 

From the top down, the Blue Devils have talent that has been rarely seen in college basketball. Zion Williamson was electrifying and R.J. Barrett looked unstoppable, but Cam Reddish and Tre Jones look like they will push this team to new heights. 

There will be no team that can keep up with Duke. The Blue Devils will win the national championship.

Every year, Duke is supposed to be the team to beat. The Blue Devils earned that reputation, but it doesn't mean they'll run their way through the season. 

Like every other team, one bad loss can end an entire season of greatness. In 2012, Duke had a team expected by many to win a national championship, only it didn't. The school was upset by 15-seed Lehigh in the first round of the tournament. Even talented teams can get caught. Duke has to earn the championship in March just like every other school.
