The 1993–94 Duke Blue Devils men's basketball team represented Duke University. The head coach was Mike Krzyzewski. The team played its home games in the Cameron Indoor Stadium in Durham, North Carolina, and was a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Having failed to win a third consecutive national championship the season before, the Blue Devils looked to improve on that. Duke finished the regular season #6 in the AP Poll and earned the #2 seed in the Southeast Region, which they won by defeating top-seeded Purdue to advance to the Final Four for the fifth time in six years. The Blue Devils returned to the National Championship Game for the fourth time in five years, but lost to Arkansas.
