Few teams garner the same expectations the Duke men's basketball program does year after year, and the 2017-18 season will be no different.
After a second-round exit in the NCAA tournament last season, the Blue Devils return experienced veterans blended with young talent as they are once again expected to be one of the top teams in the nation this season as coach Mike Krzyewski enters his 38th season with the program.
Duke hosted its annual Countdown to Craziness Friday night, the Blue Devils' version of Midnight Madness at Cameron Indoor Stadium.
Check out some highlights from Countdown to Craziness:
