Coach Mike Krzyzewski will lead Zion Williamson, RJ Barrett and the Duke Blue Devils into the NCAA tournament after winning the ACC tournament and earning the No. 1 overall seed in this year's bracket.

Since the tournament started using overall seeding back in 2004, only three teams to earn the top spot have won the tournament: Florida (2007), Kentucky (2012) and Louisville (2013-vacated).
