Remember when Duke was a mess? Seems like a million years ago now. But that was certainly the consensus after a seven-game stretch in which the Blue Devils went 3-4 and lost to North Carolina State inside Cameron Indoor Stadium. Hall of Fame coach Mike Krzyzewski even banned his players from their locker room.
But it's been all good since then.
Duke won at Wake Forest last Saturday and at Notre Dame on Monday. The Blue Devils are now 17-5 overall, 5-4 in the ACC and 16th in the Top 25 (and one).
