DURHAM, N.C. (AP) - No. 24 Duke is in the midst of one of the most successful seasons in program history. Just don't refer to the Blue Devils as one-year wonders.
The perennial losers are a victory against North Carolina from setting a school record with 10 wins an a spot in the Atlantic Coast Conference championship game.
Players insist this season hasn't been a flash in the pan. Rather, it's the latest step in the construction of a consistent program.
Linebacker Kelby Brown said Tuesday the methodical turnaround has reached the point that "now we expect to have winning seasons."
With a victory against the Tar Heels on Saturday, Duke (9-2, 5-2) will win the Coastal Division title outright and will face No. 2 Florida State in its first ACC title game.
