Yes, well, probably the biggest reason is only 1 team per conference got in the NCAAs 1974 and earlier. Pre-Coach K, we only had 8 NCAAT appearances. But, we also had 4 Final Four appearances, which makes for a pretty healthy winning percentage. Since the tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985, we've won more national titles and had more Final Final Fours than any other school. So, it makes complete sense why Duke would have the highest winning percentage.
