Just when you thought this might be a down year for the Duke Blue Devils, Coach K returns and the most hated team in America reels off five-straight wins. Over that stretch the Blue Devils have taken down chief rival North Carolina and a ranked squad in Notre Dame. Surprisingly, it has not really been the play of Duke's vaunted freshman class, but instead holdovers like Grayson Allen and the oft-forgotten Luke Kennard. Allen was spectacular in Duke's victory over UNC, while Kennard scored 25 of Duke's 64 points in the subsequent win over Clemson. The Blue Devils are now 8-4 in conference play, poised for yet another NCAA tourney berth, clicking on all cylinders and getting healthy at the right time. With the continued growth of Jayson Tatum, this Duke squad could be dangerous, even if the season did not exactly start off on the right foot.

Let's look at the rest of the movers and shakers in this week's edition of the College Hoops Barometer.
