Five North Carolina teams made the NCAA men's basketball tournament, including the ACC's Big Three in the Triangle.
Duke is a number 2 seed in the Midwest region and faces Albany Friday afternoon.
"We're excited with the position we're in," forward Ryan Kelly tells GoDuke.com.
"We've got some time to prepare and every team we face from this point on is capable of being us and we're certainly capable of beating them. That's how we have to approach it. A loss is the end of your season, so we just have to keep winning."
