Notre Dame coach Mike Brey knows plenty about the tradition of Duke and UNC after eight years as an assistant to Krzyzewski, but he said the ACC is about to turn into more than just a two-team race.

Duke and Carolina is always going to be Duke and Carolina in this league. I can say that,” Brey said. “I lived it, been there, done that. … But you know what? With what’s coming into this league and what’s brewing, I think you have a lot of programs really trending up.

“There’s going to be a lot more to watch than Carolina and Duke. And I think Roy and Mike are as excited about that as anybody, to have some other stuff out there that’s going to really wake people up.”
