Duke has won 5 NCAA Championships (tied with Indiana for fourth all-time, trailing only UCLA, Kentucky, and North Carolina) and appeared in 11 Championship Games (tied for third all-time) and 16 Final Fours (fourth all-time behind North Carolina, UCLA, and Kentucky).
The Blue Devils are one of four schools to have won championships at both the college and professional levels (the others are UCLA, Kentucky, and North Carolina).
Duke's official website lists five National Championships (based on the most recent database published by www.ncaa.com). However, this list does not include titles that were awarded before the creation of the NCAA Tournament Board. Additionally, it is possible that other institutions may have claimed or still claim championships based on different criteria.
In conclusion, Duke has won 5 National Championships in basketball.

Three NCAA championships: 1956, 1960, and 1961.
Herb "The Gherkin" Brooks is one of only three men to have won Olympic gold medals in two different sports (skiing and ice hockey). He is also the only person to have won Olympic gold medals in two different winter games. The 1956 Olympics were held in Melbourne, Australia, and the 1960 Olympics were held in Rome, Italy.
Brooks retired from skiing after the 1960 Olympics but returned for the 1964 Games in an attempt to help Canada's ice hockey team win its first Olympic gold medal. Although the Canadians lost the final game to the United States, they defeated Russia 10-9 in a preliminary round game played between the two semifinal losers. Brooks died just five days before the start of the 1968 Winter Olympics in Grenoble, France.
Canada has since replaced Brooks as the nation with most Olympic gold medals with American skier Steve Yzerman winning four times. But he did not compete under the Canadian flag because he was born in Papineauville, Quebec.
The other man to have won Olympic gold medals in both skiing and ice hockey is U.
1 (1959). 3 appearances in the Final Four (1946, 1959, 1960). Appearances in Sweet Sixteen: 4 (1959, 1960, 1993, 1997). **National Champions**.
Cal has been to the NCAA Tournament every year since its inception in 1939, and they have always made it to at least the Elite Eight. They have never gotten past that point, though; no California team has ever won the national title. The Golden Bears' only appearance in the Finals was in 1946, when they lost to Manhattan (now Wichita State). After that season, Coach John Wooden left UCLA for Cal. He took over as head coach of the Bears in 1947 and led them to more success than anyone could've imagined - including his own. Under him, Cal went 80-4 and became the first program to ever enter the tournament undefeated. That same year, he also created a record by coaching his team into another game without a loss -- which is still standing today. In 1959, after winning their first two games by an average of 30 points, Cal fell short in the final minute of regulation time against Ohio State. The game went to overtime, where the Buckeyes won by one point to claim their first national title.
The Wildcats have a 126-51 record in the NCAA Tournament. Their 17 Final Four appearances rank second all-time, with the most recent occurring in 2015. Kentucky's legendary coach Adolph Rupp guided the Wildcats to a program-record six Final Four appearances.
When Iverson Molinar of the Bulldogs converted two free throws with seven seconds left, the Wildcats (9-16) were certain of missing the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2013 and only the second time in John Calipari's 12-year stint in Lexington.
Kentucky Wildcats (57), Final Fours (17), and Championships (8). (1948, 1949, 1951, 1958, 1978, 1996, 1998, 2012).
The men's basketball season at Kentucky concluded with a missed last-second shot in the SEC tournament. But the Wildcats' season began to deteriorate even before their 74-73 loss to Mississippi State on Thursday, which cemented their fate: no NCAA tournament this year.

The Atlanta Hawks are a National Basketball Association franchise based in Atlanta, Georgia. The team was founded in 1967 when Howard Schnellenberger led Miami to an undefeated season and its first of four straight NCAA championships. The Hawks have only made the playoffs five times, most recently in 2016. They have never advanced past the First Round.
Before the Hawks, there were two other NBA teams from Atlanta: the Atlanta Hawks (now the Milwaukee Bucks) and the Atlanta Celtics (now the Sacramento Kings). The Hawks played in St Louis from 1972 to 1976 before moving to Milwaukee. The Celtics played in Boston from 1958 to 1968 before moving to Albany where they became the Golden State Warriors.
In 1969, the Hawks joined with the San Diego Clippers and the Kansas City-San Antonio Spurs to form what is now known as the Western Conference. In 1973, the New York Knicks left the old Eastern Conference to join the West. This arrangement has continued up until the present day.
