Projected seed: 4

While this Duke team has an impressive record, the projection is rooted in their performance against top-tier competition and how they've handled road tests. Their tight loss to Arizona and victory over Baylor are especially noteworthy, showcasing they can compete with the cream of the crop. However, road losses to Arkansas and Georgia Tech somewhat tarnish their resume. Moreover, the Blue Devils' ability to bounce back from losses, like the convincing win over North Carolina following the upset against Georgia Tech, proves this team's resilience. Their defensive and offensive balance suggests they're not overly reliant on one aspect of the game. They have a few challenges remaining, including rematches against North Carolina and the upcoming bout with NC State, which will be crucial in solidifying their tournament position.
