Duke’s basketball team has spent essentially no time trailing this season.

According to ESPN, the Blue Devils have only trailed for 30 seconds of their 120 minutes of game time this season. That’s correct. Through three games, Duke has been losing for a grand total of 30 seconds. They trailed 12 seconds in their blowout win over Army and 18 seconds in their domination of Eastern Michigan.

Only 30 seconds? That’s a mind-boggling number. That’s even a shorter amount of time than it takes a woman to reject me at a bar, and you’d be shocked by how quickly that can go down.

At some point, I think we need to ask if we should even bother playing the season out, or just give Duke the damn title right now. (RELATED: Duke Star Zion Williamson Puts On A Dunking Clinic In Latest Game. Watch The Majestic Highlights)

Absolutely amazing domination by Coach K’s guys out on the court. Kentucky, which is believed to be another top team, didn’t even belong on the same court as them. That’s saying just about all you need to know.

All I’ll say is that it’s going to be a very long year for anybody who steps on the floor against them. They’re coming for souls, and they’re taking them with ease.
