History of Hoops

Perhaps the most famous championship team within the City of Champions (as Durham is known) is the Duke University Blue Devils men's basketball team.

Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski is the winningest coach in collegiate men's basketball history, having broken Bobby Knight's record of 902 in the early part of the 2011-2012 season. Despite dissenting opinions from tobacco road rivals, the Duke Blue Devils are inarguably a force to be reckoned with on the hardwood.

Many visitors are enticed to Durham because of the team. Demands for tickets is always high, so seeing the team live can be difficult, but the Duke Basketball Museum & Sports Hall of Fame is adjacent to Cameron Indoor Stadium at the Schwartz/Butters Athletic Center and is there for fans to satisfy their curiosity about Duke Basketball history.

View a photo gallery of the museum and visit the museum weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and on weekends during home football and basketball games.
