Lunardi's Logic

The Blue Devils should advance comfortably through the first weekend, if only because of the near-annual commute to an overly favorable site (Greensboro). Do they have the athleticism to hang with Baylor in a potential Sweet 16 encounter? My gut says no, as the most accomplished regular-season program in America makes a relatively early exit.
