After reeling in the top recruiting class for the class of 2017, the Blue Devils entered the 2017-18 season with sky-high expectations. Some wondered, including myself, who can beat these guys? After all, they have six former 5-star recruits, three former 4-stars, and arguably the best basketball coach of all time running the show.

The ACC tournament starts today and there are several teams on the bubble looking to boost their portfolio. The season may fall onto the pressure of one game for some teams, but one thing is for sure… The ACC tournament is always exciting to watch.

The 7’1″ Bahamian monster has arguably the best NBA body. Size and strength present, Ayton looks stronger than some current NBA centers.
