DURHAM, N.C. - The Duke University athletic department launched a new comprehensive website Wednesday in conjunction with the Duke-North Carolina men's basketball game. The website features in-depth and comprehensive statistics of Duke's men's basketball program.
The website currently features every boxscore in Duke history since the 1936-37 season. Two of an anticipated four main sections are now available. The season section looks at each team since 1937 and has rosters, team stats, schedule and results and much more. The player section looks at the statistics from each player who saw action in a game since 1937.
"This was a massive project," Duke Director of Internet Operations Curtis Snyder said. "But we wanted to make this public as soon as we felt we had most of the bugs out. This is the culmination of a three-and-a half year project researching and building the website. We want our fans to have access to the most statistical information available about Duke Basketball."
In addition to season and player sections, the website will eventually have a records section as well as an opponent breakdown section. Duke also has plans to launch similar websites for some of the department's other 25 varsity sports.
"We started this project and made it a priority to help maintain our records and statistics in the most efficient way," Assistant Athletic Director for Communications Jon Jackson said. "This also allows us to give the public direct access into this information, which is not available anywhere else."
