Duke is primed to give Coach K one last conference title – The Athletic | #schoolshooting

For the first time since 2014, no ACC school made the Elite Eight, a lack of postseason excellence that defies conference norms. But the league appears to be in the process of a bounceback, which coincides with an interesting time. This fall marks the final season for Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski, whose Blue Devils are loaded with talent. It will be Hubert Davis’ first season at the helm in Chapel Hill as he succeeds Roy Williams. In Syracuse, Jim Boeheim casually enters his 46th season, during which he will be 77 years old. In Florida’s panhandle, Leonard Hamilton, the fifth-winningest coach in ACC history, will lead another deep, stingy defensive-oriented squad that figures to park in the Top 25. Elsewhere, several programs at the bottom of the league will look to rebuild.Without a doubt, this is a conference that could send the most schools to the NCAA Tournament and finish with the most programs ranked in the Top 25.
