Duke grabs No. 2 seed

After dropping out of the ACC tournament earlier than expected at the hands of Maryland, Duke was pushed out of a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament. Instead, the Blue Devils grabbed the No. 2 seed in the Midwest Region and will face No. 15 seed Albany out of the America East.

The Blue Devils, who will be meeting Albany for just the second time in school history, will play their first game on Friday in Philadelphia.

Should Duke defeat Albany in the second round, the Blue Devils will face the winner of No. 7 seed Creighton and No. 10 seed Cincinnati. Duke has never met Creighton on the hardwood and has faced off with the Bearcats just three times in school history.

Joining Duke in the Midwest Region is overall No. 1 seed Louisville and a host of quality teams, including No. 3 seed Michigan State, No. 4 seed Saint Louis, No. 5 seed Oklahoma State and No. 6 seed Memphis.

Also joining the region is Oregon and former Duke standout Kyle Singler's brother, E.J. Singler.

Duke is one of four teams out of the ACC to earn a spot into the tournament, joining No. 2 seed Miami, No. 8 seed NC State and No. 8 seed North Carolina. Virginia failed to make the field.
