#7 Seed: The 2008/09 Duke Blue Devils were a warm-up act to the 09/10 Duke team that won it all.  Led by Gerald Hendersen, Kyle Singler, and Jon Scheyer, this Blue Devil team showed early signs of the poise metric that would come to define their championship run.  An off night in their Sweet 16 matchup sent Duke packing early to an inspired Villanova team that ultimately made it to the Final Four in March 2009.  Against Nova, it was a case of live-by-the-three, die-by-the-three, with Dukes season dying a cruel death - courtesy of 5 of 27 combined shooting behind the 3 point arc.
