American sport is known for its unpredictability. It is especially true for student leagues, where playoffs are held according to the Olympic system “lost – flew”.

Duke’s success in college basketball is indisputable

Duke University is one of the most popular basketball programs in the USA. Such famous players as Zion Williamson, Kyrie Irving, Grant Hill, Carlos Buzzer and Elton Brand used to wear Duke uniforms. And the head coach of the team from North Carolina for 38 years is the legendary Mike Krzyzewski, who from 2006 to 2016 also led the U.S. national team, winning three Olympics and two world championships.
