The Duke Basketball program announced that the time and network the Blue Devils will be on when the team travels to face the Clemson Tigers in mid-January.

On Monday afternoon, it was announced that the Duke Blue Devils would be playing the Clemson Tigers on Tuesday, January 14 at 7:00pm EST on ESPN.

The date and location had already been known since the ACC released its schedule earlier in the year, but now both teams know what tipoff will be and fans know what network the game will be on.

Prior to the game, Duke still has to face the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets and Wake Forest Demon Deacons while Clemson only has to travel to play the North Carolina Tar Heels.

January 14 has the potential to be a raucous atmosphere at the Littlejohn Coliseum as the Tigers football team will play in the College Football Playoff National Championship on January 13 against the LSU Tigers.

Clemson currently holds a 7-7 record, but the Tigers are just 1-3 in the ACC with two losses at home. However, Clemson just defeated North Carolina State on Saturday afternoon, 81-70.

The Tigers have already lost to two teams that the Blue Devils have defeated in Virginia Tech and Miami. Clemson lost to those teams at home while Duke won its games against those opponents on the road.

In those two games, Duke had the services of Wendell Moore, who almost certainly will not play in eight days after undergoing surgery on January 6 for a broken hand suffered in the Blue Devils’ win over Miami on January 4.
