The home of Duke basketball is the Schwartz-Butters Athletic Center. The building, which is adjacent to Cameron Indoor Stadium, was dedicated on April 15, 2000. It is named after Alan D. Schwartz, a former Duke baseball player and the current executive vice president of Bear Stearns and Companies, Inc., and Tom Butters, Duke's long-time athletics director.

The six-story building overlooks the new Blue Devil Plaza, an open grassed area that connects several of Duke's athletic facilities, including Cameron Indoor Stadium, Card Gym, the Wilson Student Recreation Center and the Sheffield Indoor Tennis Center. During basketball season, Blue Devil Plaza transforms into Krzyzewskiville, the tent village of hundreds of Duke students waiting to get into games at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

The Schwartz/Butters Athletic Center is the anchor of the vast athletics complex, housing the Duke Sports Hall of Fame in addition to new offices, locker rooms and player lounges for both the men's and women's basketball programs. Both the men's and women's basketball teams have a 5,890 square-foot locker room, equipped with a Jacuzzi and sauna. There are weight/aerobic (1,475 square feet) and training facilities (1,075 square feet) with state-of-the-art equipment for the basketball teams.

Additionally, the new student-athlete academic center, under the direction of Brad Berndt, assistant athletics director for academic services, is housed on the third floor of the building. The academic floor was financed by a gift from Jack H. Campbell.

The Schwartz/Butters Athletic Center, part of a $75 million athletic facilities renovation project at Duke, provides the Blue Devils with one of the finest facilities in all of college basketball. It is tangible evidence of the university's commitment to providing its student-athletes with top-notch facilities
