The Duke Blue Devils have won three games in a row since being defeated by Kansas in this season’s Champions Classic. The Blue Devils, currently 4-1 on the season, sit sixth in the Associated Press Poll. That one loss to the Jayhawks was on a neutral court, but the Blue Devils are 4-0 so far at Cameron Indoor Stadium. Duke has lost Seth Curry and Mason Plumlee as important contributors from the team that advanced to the Elite Eight last season, but have some young talent ready to step in.
Duke only has one home game in the next week coming Sunday, November 24 against Vermont. The Catamounts of the America East Conference are currently 1-4 on the season and 0-3 on the road. Duke basketball tickets have a season average of $430 on the secondary market, but this game against Vermont is well below that. The average price against the Catamounts is $165, with a get-in price of $105. The $165 average price is 75% below the average price of Duke home games for the 2013-14 basketball season.
Of course, Vermont isn’t expected to be one of the big draws for Duke this season, which is why the average price is so low compared to the season average. One of Duke’s big home games does come the following week as the Michigan Wolverines come to Durham on December 3 for a game that has an average ticket price of $474 and a get-in price of $303.
Duke’s schedule continues to see some big teams after the Michigan game as they will play UCLA in Madison Square Garden on December 19. As always, there will be no shortage of excitement for Duke home games this season, and with the most expensive average tickets in college basketball, that’s what fans are expecting.
