Durham Duke Blue Devils

Duke Men's Basketball took its first steps into the 2017-18 season on Saturday when the squad arrived in Durham to take a look at the campus. Duke Blue Devils forward Jahlil Okafor and teammate J.R. Barrett will warm up with his new teammates in the first game of the 2016-17 season against the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. After warming up, Barrett hit double figures for the second time in three games, scoring 18 points and seven rebounds.

In 1892, the private research university, now called Duke University, moved to its current location in Durham, North Carolina. As early as 1902, a new team called Durham Tobacconists was said to have played their very first game at Duke. Georgia Tech retained the sophomore, who moved from Mississippi State to Duke and has been a beast since joining the Blue Devils.

The Chronicle staff continued to use the name, and the Blue Devils eventually became one of the most successful teams in the history of college basketball in North Carolina. Krzyzewski led Duke to a national championship game in 1998-99, losing to the University of Connecticut. The following season, Duke missed 19 games because of back surgery, but they were unable to play in March Madness for the first time since 1982-83. In the 2000-01 season, they set a 30-4 record, won the Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season title and earned the ACC's first NCAA tournament spot ever.

The Blue Devils' basketball team reached the NCAA tournament, which begins in mid-March and begins with the Final Four games in the first week of April. Duke basketball will play Boston College on Tuesday night in a possible tie. BC is one of the top teams in college basketball with a 12-5 record, but the Blue Devil's should win easily Tuesday night and they can't look too far ahead to their upcoming match against UNC. Although this could have been a potentially dangerous game against the Blue Devils, Duke must be careful not to look too far ahead to Saturday night's showdown with UNC.

The colors of Duke's men's basketball team are Duke Blue and White, and fans will wear their favorite colors for Tuesday night's game against Boston College. Join the live blog and here in our liveblog to discuss the Blue Devils' game against UNC on Saturday night. We will cover all the highlights and displays throughout the night so you never miss a game.

In 2010, Duke began a partnership with the Durham Bulls and began playing all of its conference games at Durham-Bulls Athletic Park (DBAP). The Duke-Carolina rivalry has seen the Blue Devils play multiple series in the past, but this is the first time in Duke's history that it has been played in Durham. Under the new partnership, Duke will play its entire conference game at Durham Bulls' Athletic Park, or "DBAP," beginning in February 2010.

With Cameron Indoor Stadium only able to hold 9,291 fans, the Blue Devils basketball tickets are a hot ticket.
