Duke leads all ACC teams in latest KenPom update
Duke is far and away the top team in the ACC, according to KenPom.
The Blue Devils will start this week ranked at No. 9 in KenPom and are the only other ACC team to be included in the top 30. No. 31 North Carolina, No. 33 Virginia Tech and No. 40 Florida State are the only other ACC teams in the top 40.
Duke has big wins over No. 5 Gonzaga and No. 10 Kentucky on its résumé. Heading into the final conference slate of Mike Krzyzewski’s career, the Blue Devils should be in great position to be a top seed in the NCAA Tournament.

Banchero is averaging 17.8 points and 7.3 rebounds per game while hitting shots at a 50 percent clip. He’s also been a positive for the Blue Devils on the defensive end of the floor.
Moore is having a breakout season as a junior. He’s also averaging 17.8 points per game, but he’s also grabbing 6.5 rebounds and dishing out 5.6 assists per contest. He already has one triple double this season and has been close on other occasions.
