Duke is the No. 1 overall seed in the 2019 NCAA Tournament and the Blue Devils' players are pretty excited about that.

Coach K's team, fresh off an ACC Tournament championship, received the No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament, getting placed in the East Region.

Duke will play the winner of No. 16 seed NC Central/No. 16 seed NDSU in the first round, which begins on Thursday and continues on Friday.

The Blue Devils' account tweeted out a video of the players' reaction to the NCAA Tournament seed.

Zion Williamson and R.J. Barrett were pretty pumped:

Duke is set to begin play on Friday, though it's game time, TV channel and opponent are to be determined.

Unsurprisingly, the Blue Devils are the favorite to win it all, both by the NCAA Tournament's seeding and Las Vegas odds.
