of a polarizing team, most college hoops fans either love the Blue devils or hate them. A squad that obviously doesn't need
much of an introduction is Duke, and that's because they've been considered one of the elite programs in the country for many,
many years. These days, the Blue Devils always seem to have a team brimming over with explosive players that are among the
best in the country, giving fans an endless array of winning teams and memorable games that everyone buzzes about all over
campus. It's never easy in the ACC, a conference routinely considered one of the very best in the country, but the Blue Devils

Blue Devils will take on all of the best teams in the ACC including arch-rivals the North Carolina Tar Heels as they look
to improve upon a third place finish in the conference last season. If you only make it to one college basketball game this
year, do yourself a favor and make it Duke versus North Carolina. As always, the Duke home schedule is loaded and will have
Cameron Indoor Stadium overflowing with the Cameron Crazies and bursting at the seams with excitement. Games against the Virginia
Cavaliers and Syracuse Orange will also be important match ups as both teams finished just ahead of Duke in the conference

Duke Blue Devils Basketball History
of Duke basketball began on Tobacco Road in 1906, giving fans more than a century of top-tier match ups filled with big-time
drama. The Blue Devils have made most of their success under legendary coach Mike Krzyzewski, one of the most successful coaches
in the history of college basketball. Duke has won multiple NCAA Tournament Titles and numerous ACC Championships over the
years, often placing their best games in starting rotations in the NBA, giving the Blue Devils a nearly unparalleled tradition
of success. With all of the Blue Devils' success also comes a target on their backs and every team in the country is regularly
gunning for Duke so have to constantly be prepared to take the opposing team's best shot. However, they are also caught up
in in one of the greatest rivalries in sports at any level with the University of North Carolina Tarheels. Whenever the two
schools meet one another, the eyes of the sports world are focused on the gym and basketball fans have been treated to some
of the sport's most historic games of all time whenever Duke and North Carolina square off against one another. There are
big things in store for the Blue Devils in the 2014-2015 college basketball season and die-hard Dukies will want to be there
right from the start.
Duke Blue Devils Basketball Conference
College basketball is virtually synonymous
with the ACC and it is never easy for a team to navigate the tough conference schedule. Perennial powerhouses North Carolina
and Duke always are staunch competition and with the recent addition of Syracuse, Pittsburgh, Louisville, and Notre Dame to
the mix the conference is only getting tougher. Altogether the ACC has won 15 National Championships with North Carolina leading
the way with five. Schools from the ACC have reached the Final Four sixty times and are always making a big impact in the
Tournament. Playing such a tough regular season schedule annually leaves the teams from the ACC who are selected for the Tournament
ready to take on any college in the country and allows for even some of the lower seeds to pull off big time upsets. When
it comes to college basketball there is arguably no conference that is historically better or more dominant than the ACC.
College basketball is an experience like no other. Featuring some of the best student athletes
in the world along with some of the most passionate fans in all of sports, the games have an atmosphere that is unrivaled.
When you set foot into Cameron Indoor Stadium for a Duke University Blue Devils home basketball game this will all be clear.
As the teams set up for opening tip off the fans stand up and vociferously cheer for their alma mater and hometown favorites.
The game continues full of back and forth action, big time shots, and clutch defensive stops. Before you know it the clock
is winding down in the second half and the two sides are wrapped up in yet another tight contest. Your palms get sweaty with
each trip down the floor and each time a player from your favorite team lets loose a shot you hold your breath until the ball
tickles the twine. This continues until the final buzzer when the Blue Devils' side erupts after another big win and their
fans flow out of the arena in jubilation.
The Blue Devils have been to the NCAA Tournament 36 times
and have produced 9 National Players of the Year. The school has won four National Championships, most recently in 2010 when
