How did the Blue Devils do last year?

The 2022-23 season was the Duke Blue Devils men’s basketball team’s first without the legendary Mike Krzyzewski on the bench. He spent 42 years as the team’s head coach. Associate head coach Jon Scheyer took over and led the Blue Devils to a 27-9 record. The team was 14–6 in ACC play and ended up fourth in the conference. However, they beat Pittsburgh, Miami, and Virginia to win the ACC Tournament.

Duke landed a No. 5 seed in the NCAA tournament and beat Oral Roberts in the first round. However, they could not get past No. 4 Tennessee in the Round of 32, ending the season with a 65-42 loss to the Vols. Duke was within four points midway through the second half, but the Volunteers pulled away late.

The Blue Devils had two players with double-digit scoring averages throughout the season:

  • Freshman Kyle Filipowski (15.1 ppg)
  • Junior Jeremy Roach (13.6 ppg)

Both players are expected to enter the 2023 NBA Draft and are projected as first-round picks.
