Duke basketball: Dangerous addition to 2022-23 schedule – Sports Illustrated

According to a tweet this week from the official account of the Delaware basketball program, the Blue Hens will travel to Cameron Indoor Stadium to face the Blue Devils on Nov. 18. This news leaves only two games unknown on the 2022-23 Duke basketball schedule.

The Blue Hens, who have twice played and lost at Duke, finished only No. 4 in the Colonial Athletic Association standings last season. However, they ended up in the Big Dance by winning the conference tournament.

Then Delaware fell in the Round of 64 to an eventual Final Four squad in Villanova.

Now, the program returns a few of that team’s top weapons, including leading scorer Jameer Nelson Jr., the son of former 14-year NBA veteran Jameer Nelson. Furthermore, note that the Blue Hens have improved steadily across Martin Ingelsby’s six seasons at the helm, from 13 wins his first year to 22 last go-round.

Their trip to Durham comes three days after Duke squares off against defending national champion Kansas in Indianapolis. That Nov. 15 matchup is part of the Champions Classic.

The other seven participants in the Phil Knight event are Florida, Gonzaga, Oregon State, Portland State, Purdue, West Virginia, and Xavier.

After that, Duke hosts Ohio State on Nov. 30 as part of the ACC-Big Ten Challenge before encountering Iowa at the Jimmy V Classic in New York City’s Madison Square Garden on Dec. 6.

Doing the math, it now looks like the Blue Devils still have two games to fill on their non-conference schedule.
