The 1990-91 Duke team changed my life.
The 1991-92 Duke team changed my changed life.
Best basketball team ever? Probably. The team that made me a sports fanatic, a statistics junkie, and made me realize that Mike Krzyzewski is an artist and a genius, yes. But I digress, I'm not trying to relive my preteen years, I'm just thinking.
As I watch this years Duke Blue Devils, I wonder, are they one in the same? The 1991 team had three seniors (Christian Laettner, Brian Davis, Ron Burt). The 2010 team has three seniors (Nolan Smith, Kyle Singler, Casey Peters). The 1991 team started ranked #1, and never lost that spot. The 2010 team started ranked #1 and have yet to lose that spot. The 1991 team, had to play a to the buzzer game against Michigan five games into the season.
