The Blue Devils are always a major threat to go deep in the tournament while under the helm of head coach Mike Krzyzewski. This year is no different, as Coach K has assembled another excellent group.
Duke has one of the best freshman in the nation in Austin Rivers, son of Boston Celtics head coach and former Atlanta Hawks point guard Doc Rivers. Austin Rivers had lofty expectations on his arrival to Durham, and the guard has proven to be the best scorer on the team, with a 15.4 points-per-game average.
He's joined in the backcourt by Seth Curry, son of former NBA sharpshooter Dell Curry, who remains a key scorer for Duke. The Blue Devils also have the brothers tandem of Mason and Miles Plumlee, who average a combined 16.3 rebounds per game.
Coach K is looking to get Duke back on track after the team has dropped two of their last three games.
Lehigh will have a tough task ahead of them. Not only are they facing an elite team, but the game is basically a home game for Duke in nearby Greensboro.
The Mountain Hawks have won 12-of-13 games, and kept a game with Michigan State competitive in December.
Lehigh head coach Brett Reed has a star in junior guard C.J. McCollum, who was the nation's fifth-leading scorer at 21.7 points per game. McCollum was the Patriot League tournament MVP after scoring 29 points, five assists and three steals in the title game.
The Mountain Hawks faced Kansas two years ago as a 16th seed, and that experience should help them against Duke.
PREDICTION: No Cinderella story here, as Duke should pound Lehigh. The Blue Devils have always been strong in the early rounds, and Lehigh doesn't have the talent to match up with the Blue Devils bench, let alone the starters. Expect Lehigh to not let this game turn into a laugher as Duke is without Ryan Kelly, a key big man.
PREDICTED SCORE: Duke over Lehigh, 66-50
