Duke Blue Devils Women's Basketball Schedule

Each year when the college basketball season begins there is perhaps no better place to be than in Durham, North Carolina, home of the Duke Blue Devils. Both the men's team and the women's team are national powerhouses known to dominate in the tough ACC as well as any out of conference foe who dares take them on. The Blue Devils have finished first in the ACC for the last four years, reaching the quarterfinals of the NCAA Tournament each year. You can expect Duke to perform well again in the ACC this year and try to get even further in the tournament than they have in recent years. The 2013-2014 season should be a memorable one for the lady Blue Devils.

Sunday February 2nd will see the Blue Devils taking on ACC newcomers Notre Dame who are always a formidable foe. You can be sure that the Lady Irish will be looking to make an impression during their first year in the conference and taking down Duke would be just the way to do so, but winning in Cameron Indoor Stadium is never a walk in the park. Monday February 10th is the big one, Duke versus North Carolina in Durham as one of the best rivalries in all of sports is renewed.

Duke Blue Devils Women's 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 Maryland are always staunch competition and with the recent addition of Syracuse, Pittsburgh, Louisville, and Notre Dame to the mix the conference is only getting tougher. Three current members of the ACC have won a national championship, Maryland, North Carolina, and Notre Dame. In the 2006 Final Four three of the four teams were from the ACC, Maryland, North Carolina, and Duke, with both Maryland and Duke advancing to the championship game which Maryland won. 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.

Duke Blue Devils Women's Basketball Rivalries

Duke University has a strong rivalry in all sports with nearby University of North Carolina, and the rivalry in basketball is especially intense. While the rivalry between the Tarheels and the Blue Devils on the men's side usually gets the most attention there is definitely no love lost when the Duke and North Carolina women's basketball teams hit the floor against one another. In the 2000′s a fierce rivalry with the University of Maryland developed as both teams were competing not only for dominance in the conference but in the entire college basketball landscape. In 2006 the teams played each other four times, the last time being in the national championship game in which Maryland came out the national champions. Whomever Duke plays in ACC play has some sort of rivalry as most of the schools have been members of the conference for decades.

The Experience

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 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 history of women's basketball at Duke can be traced back to 1974 when it began as a club sport and was coached by Emma Jean Howard who also coached the women's volleyball team. The following year men's and women's athletics merged at the university and that was the first year that women's basketball was played as a varsity sport. In 1977 it became a Division I sport and Debbie Leonard came on as the new coach while Emma Jean Howard was allowed to focus on the women's volleyball team.
