Back in April the Duke Blue Devils won their fifth national title, beating Wisconsin in the championship game in Indianapolis. Mike Krzyzewski’s team will have a far different look next season, as they’ll need to replace four starters from that championship team.
Leading that group was Quinn Cook, the team’s lone senior, and freshmen Jahlil Okafor, Tyus Jones and Justise Winslow, all of whom have moved on to the professional ranks. Wednesday Duke released a highlight video of the 2014-15 campaign, a 12-plus minute film that takes viewers from start to finish on the team’s run to the national title.
As for the 2015-16 season, Duke’s managed to reel in one of the top recruiting classes in the country, led by point guard Derryck Thornton Jr. and wing Brandon Ingram. The Blue Devils also return some quality pieces, with the likes of Amile Jefferson, Matt Jones and Grayson Allen (they’ll also have Rice transfer Sean Obi) back in Durham.
