DURHAM, N.C. – The Duke men’s basketball team has announced its 2018-19 preseason schedule, which includes the dates for Countdown to Craziness and the two exhibition games at Cameron Indoor Stadium.

The season tips off with Countdown to Craziness presented by Delta Air Lines on Friday, October 19 at Cameron Indoor. The annual event features a night of entertainment, games, engaging videos and on-court contests all leading up to the introduction of the 2018-19 Blue Devils, the unveiling of this season’s team poster and the annual Blue-White scrimmage.

As has been tradition at Duke, the Blue Devils will host the reigning Division-II national champions and the reigning CIAA champions for exhibition contests. On Tuesday, October 23, defending CIAA winner Virginia Union is the opponent, while last year’s Division-II national champ, Ferris State, comes to Durham on Saturday, Oct. 27. Tip times and broadcast information for Countdown and the exhibition games will be announced at a later date.

Duke opens the 2018-19 season versus Kentucky on Tuesday, Nov. 6 in the Champions Classic in Indianapolis on ESPN. The Blue Devils welcome Indiana to Cameron Indoor on Tuesday, Nov. 27 in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. The remainder of Duke’s regular-season non-conference schedule will be finalized later this summer.

In August, the Blue Devils head north for three summer exhibition games on the Duke Canada Tour. Duke faces Ryerson University (Aug. 15) and University of Toronto (Aug. 17) in Toronto and McGill University (Aug. 19) in Montreal. Ticket packages are now on sale and can be purchased at www.dukecanadatour.com.
