This is also in addition to some other schools who will “love” the program simply because they have so much stiff competition academically. But this is where you can separate the teams when it comes to choosing a college basketball program. When it comes to the heart and soul of a program, it really comes down to which team will give you the most passionate support. Which team will have the biggest chances of success, regardless of where they play.

The University Of North Carolina


The University of North Carolina has a long-standing history as one of the top programs in the Atlantic Coast Conference. The school has a storied past and has played some of the best teams in the country over the years. A lot of recent success has come from the return of such notable names as Ras Muhammad, Al Mohammed Muhammad, and Grant Williams. The current top-rated player on the duke basketball program is point guard Rashard Lewis, and he is making some big waves in the NCAA playing in the United States.

But can any team that has won a national championship in the last six years to get another title in the near future? There are some major question marks that need to be addressed before any team with a title or future in the field can be considered for another national championship. Some of these questions include if incoming coach Mike Krzyzewski will be able to recruit top high school talent, how quickly can he mold those players into winners, and will any of them play in the UK’s first team internationally in the near future?

Blue Devils

The answer to all of these questions is “yes”. Right now, the Blue Devils has enough talent to go from a relatively weak pool of talent to one of the better teams in the country. With some solid recruiting, as well as the arrival of three top-notch recruits in the class of 2021, UK can very well take over the national rankings one year at a time. This means that right now, Duke basketball program is more stacked than it has ever been in the last five years.

It’s been widely reported that UK has had more athletes sign with their program than any other power conference team in the country. Even with such incredible support from Nike and Adidas, UK still has room for growth. This is why the most recent viral hit – “Duke Basketball” by Duke University Student/Follower on Instagram is so important. It’s a sign that the student body really believes that the basketball program can do great things.

“Duke Basketball”

According to Krzyzewski, the “Duke Basketball” campaign is part of UK’s plan to rise to the top as one of the top schools in the country. That includes signing big name players such as Patrick Patterson and Nerlien Maucy. In addition, the head coaching position has already been filled by new graduate transfer manger Mike Krzyzewski. These are huge shoes to fill, as any high school or college basketball program needs a proven head coach to guide them towards national prominence and a trip to the Elite Eight.

Bottom Lines

One way to get a good feel for the depth of UK’s basketball team is to go to the C Carr newspaper website and read about UK basketball recruiting. You can also go online and read the UK Recruiting webpage. This site also includes information on the classes that the school is offering, academic requirements, the coaches, current players, academic and athletic accomplishments. As you can see, the C Carr newspaper is a great resource for all things UK, including recruiting news.
