How long will Duke stay undefeated?

By Adena Andrews | CBS Sports

For the second time in three seasons Duke has started 15-0. Three more wins will set the record for the best start in program history.

The Blue Devils went 17-0 in 1991-92, then repeated in 2005-06.

However, an injured Ryan Kelly (foot) being out indefinitely will make it difficult for Duke to defeat the next three teams on the schedule that stand between it and the record. Kelly's absence will make spacing different for Duke on offense, according to CBS Sports Network College Insider Jon Rothstein.

Pete Gillen, CBS College Basketball analyst, thinks NC State presents the biggest threat. The Wolfpack are 9-0 at home and the Blue Devils head there Saturday for a noon tipoff.

After that Duke takes on Georgia Tech at home and then travels to play at Miami.
