Generally speaking, Duke’s best teams have come with great point guards. Like his former assistant Jeff Capel, Coach K attaches huge importance to the position and likes to have a special relationship with his point guards.

Look for that this season as Tre Jones steps in and provides a very different experience at point guard than we’ve seen in recent years. He's going to be hugely important for Duke.

Bonus fun: Cam Reddish will be his backup.
