Another major aspect of the Duke basketball schedule has been revealed by the ACC. 

The Atlantic Coast Conference has announced its opponents and venues for the Duke basketball program for the next three seasons as the Blue Devils look to continue its reign at the top of the conference.

As portions of the 2022-23 non-conference schedule are released for the first season under new head coach Jon Scheyer, Duke knows where they will be traveling throughout the ACC this upcoming season.

The Blue Devils will play North Carolina and Wake Forest twice this season as well in each of the next three years, both at home and on the road.

Duke will also play Boston College, Miami (FL), North Carolina State, and Virginia Tech twice this upcoming regular season while the Blue Devils will only host Florida State, Louisville, Notre Dame, and Pittsburgh.

Scheyer will take his squad on the road to visit Clemson, Georgia Tech, Syracuse, and Virginia in his first season at the helm of the program.

There have been no dates assigned to any of these games by the conference.

Duke basketball gearing up for historic season

Last year was a historic one in many ways for the Blue Devils, but this season will be equally as historic for Duke under the leadership of Jon Scheyer.

Duke lost five players to the NBA Draft, Paolo Banchero, Mark Williams, AJ Griffin, Wendell Moore, and Trevor Keels, while Marquette graduate transfer Theo John completed his one year with the program and Joey Baker opted to enter the transfer portal as a graduate transfer.

However, Scheyer returns star point guard Jeremy Roach and welcomes in the top ranked recruiting class in the country headlined by Dereck Lively, Kyle Filipowski, and Dariq Whitehead.

The Jon Scheyer era begins on November 7 against Jacksonville before the Blue Devils travel to Indianapolis to face the defending National Champion Kansas Jayhawks in the State Farm Champions Classic on November 15.

Duke will host Bellarmine on November 21 before traveling to Portland, Oregon to play three games in the Phil Knight Invitational against a combination of Florida, Gonzaga, Oregon State, Purdue, West Virginia, Xavier, and/or Portland State.

The Blue Devils will also participate in the Jimmy V Classic at Madison Square Garden on December 6 against the Iowa Hawkeyes.

There are still three non-conference games to schedule for Duke, presumably all ‘buy games’ at home, as the program still has not received word who it will host in the ACC vs. Big Ten Challenge.
