#3 Seed: The 2003/04 Duke Blue Devils put together a dominant season, with Chris Duhon and Luol Deng leading the charge for Coach Mike Krzyzewski's team.  These Blue Devils were strong at every position, but were NOT particularly strong with the ball relative to the 2001/02 decade field of 68.  A poised team that led a foul plagued Okafor/Connecticut Huskies throughout their matchup, coach K had to endure watching three Duke players foul out in the second half in their stunning Final Four melt down loss in March 2004.  Connecticut's magnificient 12-0 run near the end of their Final Four matchup with the Blue Devils seemed completely uncharacteristic to the Duke nation. The Blue Devils Final 4 loss was surprising to all who watched their stunning collapse unfold.
