Counting on a big weekend from: Seth Curry. The Blue Devils are a different team when the junior guard scores at an elite level. Duke has a lot of capable parts, but Curry's output in February coincided with its best wins.
Number to know: 926. Career wins for Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski's, the NCAA record for a Division I men's coach, with 52 of them in the ACC tournament, six shy of Dean Smith's conference record.
Hotlanta or Notlanta?: Not. The Devils have won the last three ACC titles, and the last two times the tournament was in Atlanta (2009 and 2001). But does this Duke team, with junior forward Ryan Kelly out with a sprained right foot, have the wherewithal to beat Florida State and UNC on consecutive days?
