Duke, Of Course, Still A Title Contender

February 21, 2020

In the almost completely meaningless college basketball regular season, at times games that really do not matter, get inordinate attention.

Such was the case this week when North Carolina State, playing at home, routed perennial power and 5 time champion under current coach, Mike Krzyzewski, Duke University.

N.C. State deserves credit, however, this could work in Duke’s favor. The race for the title is wide open and it would be foolish to not consider Duke as a major contender.

The ones who know best, certainly they do not know nor claim to know all, the people who set odds, have Duke as only a slight underdog, to make yet another national semi/final four appearance.
