When making your March Madness office pool picks, consider the teams carefully.  The Duke Blue Devils, for example, should be thought of us going to the Final Four, but will they?  Remember to print out your March Madness bracket here


Why They Go Deep

If Zion Williamson is the old Zion, Duke can win it all. If not, Duke can be beaten by anybody in the top 20.

Why Be Concerned

The later must be considered prior to filling out your brackets.  Yes, they will advance after the first week.  Making it beyond the Sweet 16, that could be a problem. A solid win against UNC suggests the later will occur.  Zion Williamson posted 31 points on 13-of-19 shooting and 11 rebounds.  So, yeah, the old Zion is back.

Who They Will Play

They will likely face Iona or North Carolina Central.
