UE Men's Basketball to Play at Duke

The University of Evansville will be playing at Duke University in December.

On December 20, the UE men's basketball team will make the trip to Durham, North Carolina to take on Duke University at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

"This is such a great opportunity for our program to play on this stage," Purple Aces head coach Marty Simmons said.  "Duke is one of the top programs in the country and it is going to be a great experience for our team to play at Cameron Indoor Stadium."

 Duke has won five NCAA Championships while making 11 championship games and 16 Final Fours.  The Blue Devils also have the top NCAA Tournament winning percentage at 75.5%.

This will be the first-ever meeting between the two schools. 

 "We have a ton of respect for Mike Krzyzewski and their program.  This is another great contest to add to our schedule for 2017-18," Simmons added.
