Why Duke will win the ACC title

Duke Blue Devils

2013-14: 26-9 (13-5 ACC)
In-conference offense: 1.19 points per possession (first)
In-conference defense: 1.03 points allowed per possession (sixth)

Jahlil Okafor is the No. 1-ranked freshman in the nation, and the most recent bearers of that title have led us to expect Duke's new star will (A) make first-team all-conference (just like Andrew Wiggins, Nerlens Noel and Anthony Davis did), (B) quite possibly be a first-team All-American (like Davis; Wiggins made the second team) (C) be long gone by this time next year (like every national No. 1 recruit since Harrison Barnes).

Can Okafor possibly live up to these precedents? Yes, it's probable that he can.
