There's no secret at all about what Duke's first line of attack is in every game: the game goes through Jahlil Okafor.

UNC has some things which the team is willing to discuss and of course some they're not.
Doubling worked for a while, but that changed when Justise Winslow got over his slump. Now everyone is a threat again.
As Brice Johnson puts it, "[h]opefully, he’ll kick it out and they won’t make that many shots."
