At this point, it’s common knowledge that Duke has been one of the most consistent basketball programs in the NCAA over the last three-plus decades.

The Blue Devils, who have started 8-0 this season and currently rank No. 1 nationally, have won over 1,000 games under coach Mike Krzyzewski since he took over in 1980 — including a 91-28 tournament record that features five national championships.

Duke plays Indiana on the road tonight at 9:30 p.m. ET on ESPN.
