The Duke men’s basketball program is the reigning national champion. The team, however, isn’t defending the title. Only one starter returns from last season. This is not a shock in the modern college basketball climate. Not since Florida successfully defended its 2006 title has a reigning champ returned all five of its starters. Since, it’s been just as common for a champion to lose all its starters than bring back more than one.
On the heels of Duke’s national championship, I spoke with Kevin Cullen, the program’s director of information technology. In his role, he’s responsible for opponent scouting, which includes analyzing data provided by SportVU cameras.
