The Duke Blue Devils men's basketball team is the college basketball program representing Duke University in the Atlantic Coast Conference of NCAA Division I. The team is tied for the fourth-highest number of all-time wins of any NCAA men's basketball program.[1] and is coached by Mike Krzyzewski.

Duke has won 4 NCAA championships (tied for fifth all-time) and appeared in 10 Championship Games (third all-time) and 15 Final Fours (tied for third all-time), and has an NCAA-best .750 NCAA tournament winning percentage. 11 Duke players have been named the National Player of the Year, and 71 players have been selected in the NBA Draft. In the 2008–2009 NBA season, Duke had more former players on NBA rosters than any other school.[2] Additionally, Duke has 36 players named All-Americans (chosen 60 times) and 14 Academic All-Americans. Duke has been the Atlantic Coast Conference Champions a record 19 times. The program also lays claim to 19 ACC regular season titles.[3] Prior to joining the ACC, Duke won the Southern Conference championships five times. Duke has also finished the season ranked No. 1 in the AP poll seven times and is second, behind only UCLA, in total weeks ranked as the number one team in the nation by the AP with 121 weeks.[4] Additionally, the Blue Devils have the second longest streak in the AP Top 25 in history with 200 consecutive appearances from 1996 to 2007, trailing only UCLA's 221 consecutive polls from 1966–1980.[5] As a result of such success, ESPN, in 2008, named Duke the most prestigious college basketball program since the 1985-86 season, noting that "by any measure of success, Duke is king of the hill in college basketball in the 64-team era of the NCAA tournament."[5] Since that designation, Duke won another national title in 2010.

Adapted from Duke University Archives[7]
In 1906, Wilbur Wade Card, Trinity College's Athletic Director and a member of the Class of 1900, introduced the game of basketball to Trinity. The January 30 issue of The Trinity Chronicle headlined the new sport on its front page. Trinity's first game ended in a loss to Wake Forest, 24–10. The game was played in the Angier B. Duke Gymnasium, later known as The Ark. The Trinity team won its first title in 1920, the state championship, by beating the North Carolina State College of Agriculture and Engineering (now NC State) 25 to 24. Earlier in the season they had beaten the University of North Carolina 19–18 in the first match-up between the two schools. Trinity college then became Duke University.

Billy Werber, Class of 1930, became Duke's first All-American in basketball. The Gothic-style West Campus opened that year, with a new gym, later to be named for Coach Card. The Indoor Stadium opened in 1940. Initially it was referred to as an "Addition" to the gymnasium. Part of its cost was paid for with the proceeds from the Duke football team's appearance in the 1938 Rose Bowl. In 1972 it would be named for Eddie Cameron, head coach from 1929 to 1942.

In 1952, Dick Groat became the first Duke player to be named National Player of the Year. Duke left the Southern Conference to become a charter member of the Atlantic Coast Conference in 1953. The Duke team under Vic Bubas made its first appearance in the Final Four in 1963, losing 74–71 to Loyola in the semifinal. The next year, Bubas' team reached the national title game, losing to the Bruins of UCLA, who claimed 10 titles in the next 12 years.

The basketball program won its 1000th game in 1974, making Duke only the eighth school in NCAA history to reach that figure. In a turnaround, Coach Bill Foster's 1978 Blue Devils, who had gone 2–10 in the ACC the previous year, won the conference tournament and went on to the NCAA championship game, where they fell to Kentucky. Mike Gminski ('80) and Jim Spanarkel ('79) ran the floor.

Mike Krzyzewski era[edit]

Mike Krzyzewski

Mike Krzyzewski has been at Duke since 1980. His many accomplishments include:

  • 4 National Championships (1991, 1992, 2001, 2010 )
  • 11 Final Fours (most since 1984–85) as well as five in a row from 1988 to 1992.
  • 21 Sweet Sixteens (most since 1984–85) and nine straight from 1998–2006
  • 29 NCAA tournament berths
  • 81 NCAA tournament wins (most ever)
  • 12 No. 1 seeds
  • 25 conference titles (12 regular season, 13 tournament), 10 of last 13 ACC Tournament Titles
  • 12 30-win seasons
  • 29 20-win seasons
  • Number 1 AP ranking in 17 of the past 28 seasons
  • 7 Naismith College Player of the Year Awards
  • 9 National Defensive Players of the Year Awards
  • 26 AP All-Americans
  • 14 consensus first team All-Americans
  • 11 NBA top-10 picks: T-1st[8]
  • 23 NBA Draft first round picks
  • 976 Career wins (most wins by a coach in Mens' Division 1 basketball as of 2/11/2014)

Krzyzewski's teams made the Final Four in 1986, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1994, 1999, 2001, 2004 and 2010.

Duke upset the heavily favored UNLV Runnin' Rebels 79–77 in the Final Four in 1991, a rematch of the 1990 final in which Duke lost by an embarrassing 30 points. The team, led by Christian Laettner, Bobby Hurley, Grant Hill, and Thomas Hill went on to defeat Kansas 72–65 to win the university's first NCAA Championship. Ranked #1 all season and favored to repeat as national champions in 1992, Duke took part in a game "acclaimed by many [as] the greatest college basketball game ever played," according to ESPN.[9][10][11][12] In the Elite Eight, Duke met the Rick Pitino-led Kentucky Wildcats. It appeared Kentucky had sealed the win in overtime when guard Sean Woods hit a running shot off the glass in the lane to put Kentucky up by one with 2.1 seconds left on the clock. After a timeout, Duke's Grant Hill threw a full-court pass to Christian Laettner. Laettner took a dribble and nailed a turn-around jumper at the buzzer to send Duke into the Final Four with a 104–103 victory. Duke went on to defeat the Sixth-seeded Michigan 71–51 to claim its second NCAA Championship. They would later meet Kentucky for another classic regional final game, but blow a 17-point second half lead in losing to the Wildcats. The Blue Devils would lose the 1994 title game to Arkansas and their "Forty Minutes of Hell" defense. The next two seasons would see them fall to just 31-31, though they inexplicably made the 1997 tournament with an 18-13 record, 8-8 in conference play. They would also fall in the 1999 title game, this time to Jim Calhoun and the UCONN Huskies. Duke defeated Arizona 82–72 to win its third NCAA Championship in 2001, becoming one of a handful of teams in NCAA Tournament history to defeat all of their tournament opponents by double digits. Krzyzewski was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame later that year. On April 5, 2010 Duke Men's Basketball won their fourth NCAA Championship by defeating Butler 61–59.

Highly ranked recruit Jabari Parker signed with Duke before the start of the 2013-2014 season. He was ranked as the second best recruit by ESPN. [13] He has the record for most 20 point games by a Blue Devil in their Freshmen year.

Duke has been ranked as the #1 team in the nation 235 weeks in their history.


Former Duke stars such as Alaa Abdelnaby, Johnny Dawkins, Cherokee Parks, Bobby Hurley, Antonio Lang, Roshown McLeod, William Avery, Trajan Langdon, Grant Hill, Danny Ferry, Christian Laettner, Brian Davis, Elton Brand, Shane Battier, Carlos Boozer, Chris Duhon, Mike Dunleavy, Dahntay Jones, Daniel Ewing, J.J. Redick, Shavlik Randolph, Shelden Williams, Corey Maggette, Luol Deng, Josh McRoberts, Gerald Henderson, Austin Rivers, Lance Thomas, Kyle Singler, Miles Plumlee, Nolan Smith, Jason Williams, and Kyrie Irving have gone on to play in the NBA. Many of Krzyzewski's assistants and former players, such as Tommy Amaker (Seton Hall, University of Michigan and Harvard), Bob Bender (Illinois State University and University of Washington), Mike Brey (Delaware and Notre Dame), Jeff Capel (VCU and Oklahoma), and Johnny Dawkins (Stanford) Quin Snyder (Missouri), Steve Wojciechowski (Marquette) have become head basketball coaches at major universities, while Pete Gaudet is now the head coach of the India women's national basketball team.

Cameron Indoor Stadium[edit]

Cameron Indoor Stadium, home of the Blue Devils

Cameron Indoor Stadium was completed on January 6, 1940, having cost $400,000. At the time, it was the largest gymnasium in the country south of the Palestra at the University of Pennsylvania. Originally called Duke Indoor Stadium, it was renamed for Coach Cameron on January 22, 1972.[14] The building originally included seating for 8,800, though standing room was sufficient to ensure that 12,000 could fit in on a particularly busy day. Then, as now, Duke students were allowed a large chunk of the seats, including those directly alongside the court. Renovations in 1987–1988 removed the standing room areas and added seats, bringing capacity to 9,314.

Duke's men's basketball teams have had a decided home-court advantage for many years, thanks to the diehard students known as the Cameron Crazies. The hardwood floor has been dedicated and renamed Coach K Court in honor of head coach Mike Krzyzewski, and the tent city outside Cameron where students camp out before big games is what is known as Krzyzewskiville. In 1999, Sports Illustrated ranked Cameron the fourth best venue in all of professional and college sports,[15] and USA Today referred to it as "the toughest road game in the nation".[16]
