Duke basketball is considered one of the “blue bloods” of college basketball and a lot of that is thanks to Coach K. He’s accumulated over 1,000 wins with the vast majority of them coming at Duke and that means a lot of weeks spent as the No. 1 team in the AP Poll.
With the latest AP Poll release, Duke tied an all-time record. They are now tied with UCLA for most weeks spent as the top team in the country.
A lot of those UCLA weeks undoubtedly came from John Wooden’s tenure there when the team won 10 NCAA Championships and seven of them consecutively from 1967 to 1973. However, Duke will have a chance to take the record alone assuming it can beat St. Francis and Boston College this week.
