    We’ll be there again in November.
    In English's defense, JJ also had an excellent game against Texas at MSG. And, according to the article below, the "Just like Clemson" chant was at the MSG game.

    ESPN says the Empire Classic will, as we speculated, feature Duke vs. Cal and Gtown vs. Texas as the two first round matchups.

    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    By the way, the two best pre-season tournaments appear to be the Battle for Atlantis and the Maui Invitational.

    Maui has both Mich State and Kansas, arguably preseason #1 and #2, though the rest of the field is pretty pedestrian by Maui standards. I guess Anthony Edwards makes UGA interesting:
    Dayton vs. Georgia
    Michigan State vs. Virginia Tech
    Kansas vs. Chaminade
    UCLA vs. BYU

    Battle 4 Atlantis features 3 of the top 10 with Gonzaga, UNC, and Michigan as well as quality teams in Oregon, Iowa State, and Seton Hall. Really impressive field:
    Michigan vs. Iowa State
    North Carolina vs. Alabama
    Gonzaga vs. Southern Miss
    Seton Hall vs. Oregon

    They've released Duke's final non-conference schedule.

    I had guessed that Duke might play a conference game in December but I don't see when. Looks like it will be two conference games each week from January on.

    There is clearly an opening the weekend of Dec 7-8 before the exam break. Duke has traditionally played a game the first weekend of December and I strongly suspect we will see an ACC game in that slot this year.

    We'll see. Michigan State and a conference game in the same week? The reading period begins on the 7th. Do we play games during the reading period?

    As a season ticket holder, I must say that I am disappointed by the absence of any high-quality opponents on the non-conference home schedule this year.

    The chances that Duke plays an ACC game on that weekend are basically 100%. Remember, this is the year that the ACC goes to a 20 game conference schedule. Additionally, every team in the ACC EXCEPT Duke is going to have a conference game as their opening game of the season. Duke cannot do that because they will open the season at the Champions Classic: http://theacc.com/news/2019/3/15/men...all-games.aspx

    So there is a chance that Duke plays 1 ACC game in December, then finishes their season with 19 straight ACC games. Like others have suspected, I think the mid-winter (late January or early February) non-conference game will go away.

    This is Duke's first road game of the season. So I guess AP voter Graham Couch (who, coincidentally, writes for the Lansing paper) won't be ranking Duke at all until Monday, December 9. If he still has an AP vote.

    Since this version of the non-conference schedule contains speculation, I'm summarizing it here. Most of the early non-conference games are Tuesday and Friday, which prevents an overlap with football.

    10/26 NW MO St. (Exh.)
    10/30 Ft. Valley St. (Exh.)
    11/5 v. KS (MSG)
    11/8 CSU
    11/12 C. AR
    11/15 GA St.
    11/21 v. CA (MSG)
    11/22 v. Gtwn/TX (MSG)
    11/26 SF Austin
    11/29 Winthrop
    12/3 @MSU

    ** ACC opener goes here between 12/4 and 12/11 (exams).
    My hunch is this is Football Championship Saturday.

    12/19 Wofford
    12/28 Brown

    How lucky is Wofford?

    They play in Cameron on Dec 19th, and in CARMICHAEL four days earlier, in the Heel's first regular season home game there since 1986.

    Besides playing in two electric and storied venues, I'd love for Wofford to be able to say they've beaten the baby blues in both the dome and in Carmichael...in the last three years.

    I watched that Wofford team play here in Asheville in the SoCon tournament. They were a legit squad with some playmakers and some serious shooters. No idea what their make up is this coming year,but they were fun to watch.

    Look on the bright side: This makes it more likely that The Streak reaches 20 years . . . . .

    The days of the big non-conference series are dead in favor of extra games against Miami and Boston College. The casualties are any extra series like St. John's (or Temple/Georgetown) and a guaranteed MSG game against the best team we can schedule. It will be 1 Big 10 team every 2 years in Cameron. Coach K was even arguing against tournaments like Maui last season because it took up 3 A/N spots.

    It’s been like that for a while now, but yeah this season is particularly bad, mainly because our ACC/B10 game is on the road and we apparently no longer have a “bye” slot in the conference schedule (during which we played St. John’s the past two seasons). With the conference schedule having expanded to 20 games I don’t see us ever scheduling a tough OOC opponent at home, there’s just no reason to given the number of tough conference games we’ll already have and the neutral site tournaments that we always commit to.

    I’ve received the season ticket application in the mail. I’ve placed a photo of it below. About the only thing it reveals is that Duke will have two conference games in December, one after the MSU game and one after the Brown game on 12/28.
