Durham, NC - Mason Plumlee said it best: "No one ever won a championship in December."
The Duke Blue Devils were named the #1 team in the nation in both the AP and USA Today NCAA Polls.
As the Blue Devils met with the media on Tuesday at Cameron Indoor Stadium, each made it clear that this is not the finish line.
"It's better to be in first place, than to be anywhere else," said forward Ryan Kelly. "To be #1 in the polls is an accomplishment, but bottom line is we have to be #1 at the end."
Duke plays back-to-back games starting on Wednesday, December 19th. Cornell plays Duke on Wednesday, followed by Elon on Thursday. Both are at home in Cameron Indoor Stadium.
